I am feeling positive that at last we may be through the winter.  The older I get, the more I dislike the cold weather.  I find it draining and despite my best efforts I feel dragged down.  As I write, the back door is open and there is a slight breeze from the garden.  It feels good to see the sunshine.  I am planning a visit to Burford Garden Centre next week so my enthusiasm for being outside in the garden is beginning to return.
