We arrived back yesterday evening from grey, cold Wales, although with a lot of happy family memories of our holiday, to find that we’d travelled back into spring. People here warn that we may still have cold weather but today has been glorious with bright warm sunlight and the temperature up to 18 degrees C.
The apricot tree is covered in flower buds, some of which have begun to open.

And a salad for lunch
A mix of lettuce and spinach leaves picked this morning.
