The rain sort of stopped today - well at least for a while and I had to do my weekly shopping with Ann, my neighbour.

After I'd scrambled my way through the fence - there is a gate but it's quite high up - I noticed that more crocuses had sprung up. [Is it crocuses or croci] - well anyway - out comes the camera as I'd noticed Ann sitting in her little conservatory still writing out her list.
