The first snowdrops of 2014 - spotted last Sunday under the hedgerow!
Well that always makes me smile - just the thought of Spring being just round the corner.
Today is January 17th and I always reflect on our parents happy marriage - now 72 years ago.
Though no longer with us, I remember how they described their wartime wedding - Mum in a powder blue suit and Dad in RAF uniform, I think. It's a shame there are no photos of that happy day.
(I could write more but I have just popped over to Annie's blog so I can link up and surprise, surprise - she has written about it too. She has said it all so beautifully, I don't need to say more)
So raise a glass to that young couple who enjoyed a happy life together and who left a warm loving place in lots of folks hearts.
