The wind has picked up again, the fence remains broken. There’s little point in attempting to fix it when the wind will just blow them out again.
I’m going to visit Hodsock Priory at Blythe, nr Worksop (North Notts) in a few weeks to see the Snowdrops, we have a fair few out here now, so I assume they will also be out at the priory as it’s around 15/20 miles south… For the first time I find myself wishing someone had a twitter account so I could get updates… ha ha. Usually facebook, twitter et al is evil, but in this situation come in so very handy!
*shhhh, don’t mention that I have accounts for both!*
