Muddy waters.

The river Mun is a bit excited this morning, rushing to the sea, the colour of milky coffee. There is a lake inland which has gates which they open when the water levels are high, hence a surge at this end.

Signs of spring; a celandine trying to flower and small narcissus getting their act together.

A close encounter of the furry kind.

The ginger tom from next door [ well three houses away ] came to call. Now this is a very great honour as he usually treats me with great disdain and will rarely stop for a stroke. It was a cold night and he felt the need to warm his paws so, for the first time ever, he sat on my lap and his paws were cold. He did check out Sally's but the laptop was not as comfortable even if it was warm.

It is time to get a map.

Norfolk has a lot of roads and the one you can see is one of the larger ones. Most of the network is single track roads with passing places, some are known as three-ply tarmac/grass/tarmac only used by locals. This notice is to help visitors as the coast road has been closed, for roadworks, and the alternative routes are on the narrow side.

Snowdrops putting on a fine show in a local churchyard along with a patch of aconites; spring is on its way.

I have a new friend.....

..... This handsome beast (made by Joy Whiddett) has come to enhance the garden. He was made by a friend of mine and is a willow boar. Unlike the real thing he is no good at gardening so the snowdrops have to fight through the the winter rubbish.
I am trying to catch up but the weather is not helping.
