Therefore all seasons shall be sweet to thee, Whether summer clothe the general earth With greeness, or the redbreast sit and sing Betwixt the tufts of snow on the bare branch Of mossy apple-tree, while the nigh thatch Smokes in the sun-thaw; whether the eave-drops fall Heard only in the trances of the blast, Or if the secret ministry of frost Shall hang them up in silent icicles, Quietly shining to the quiet Moon.

Happy New Year!
Happy New Year everyone! Especially Regina who spurred me into action again:) I've been so busy since I returned from the USA that I haven't had time to do a blog post but will be back with photos and tales of my visit to Savannah and New Orleans in the next couple of days. Meanwhile a photo of me with all five of my grandchildren taken over the Winter Solstice weekend when all my family were here. It's rarely that we are all together these days so it was a wonderful but hectic gathering. The four older ones all get along together so well, it's a pity they meet up so rarely. Happily they'll be having a few days together later this month when Steve, Hannah and the girls go down to stay in Suffolk. Hope it stops raining before then!!
