  1. Just SUCH a thrill to see these signs of springtime! I’ve just discovered flower heads on the euphorbia I thought would never bloom. I join you in your delight! 🙂
    I’m so enjoying your Small Stones postings…I was feeling pressurised into doing one a day, so mine are intermittent now. I admire your constancy – thank you for the pleasure of reading them! xxx

      And thank you again for reading my words, and for your encouraging comments. Cx
