Around this time every year I try to get down to my inlaws in sunny Devon, and I made it last weekend. A very brief trip, too brief considering the six-hour drive each way and much too brief considering the hospitality. We did go for a companionable walk, since they're indefatigable ramblers and cyclers, and although the camera batteries ran out too early I still have one pic to show you.
The flower in the second picture is azalea precox and is always out very early, with the daffodils. Mostly it's at its best on my birthday in February, so I have a soft spot for it. I found it on the camera, so here it is - better late than never!
