Spring has sprung

Come through this tiny ancient doorway and I'll lead you to a beautiful land.

A land of sunshine & flowers at a place called Thriplow where since 1969 come what may, they have had an annual daffodil festival (apart from 2001 when it was cancelled because of foot and mouth disease).
We went with Ricardos' brother Ray & sister in law Mary on the weekend.

There were so many daff's.

New lambs.

Thatched cottages. A 13th century Church where they were ringing a quarter peal of Oxford treble bob minor. Birds of prey including this beautiful Barn owl. Huge & graceful Shire horses with their owners who sported the most amazing sideburns I've ever seen.

And a couple of lovebirds. (Once I got over an unnecessary attack of grumpiness, looks like butter wouldn't melt in my mouth, doesn't it!!!!!!)

Maybe you could have it for May, June, July & August & I could have it the rest of the time!!!! We could really work this Southern/Northern hemisphere thing.
