The seasons they are turnin' and my sad heart is yearnin'/To hear again the songbird's sweet melodious tone... BOB DYLAN Moonlight from Love And Theft
I've just been for a walk round the village on this mild January afternoon. Crocuses were in full bloom in the churchyard. Snowdrops and primroses were out, and daffodils and bluebells pushing through. A single celandine was in flower on a shady bank by the stream. Blue tits, great tits, robins and wrens were very active in the trees and bushes. An early spring again this year?
