This blog has been in limbo for 6 months or so while I have been working on other projects. This blog is always the one that gives way first. Thanks to everyone who has visited it and even stuck with it despite the lack of new posts.

At last we have Spring in London. The birds are ‘twitterpated’ (©Walt Disney, Bambi – classic child-friendly euphemism). Suddenly there are things to be done in the garden, largely neglected during a long winter. The sun is out and I can tell the time on the sundial (last time I looked it said ‘November’).
