First daffodils - clematis windows

Our first daffodil appeared rather lonely yesterday among the snowdrops. The other sign of spring was the frogs on the road on tuesday night with the heavy rain, all coming to spawn.

Out with the old, in with the new. New windows for Clematis, which is the last of the works that needs doing to complete tge insulation of walls and floor throughout. Obviously a solid wooden floor on top plus new bathroom thrown in.

And finally, out with the old, in with the ....... Older. Barbara has been given an old piano that is a better quality and in concert pitch for the Edwardian. We have given our old piano to Ardmaddy holiday cottages through freecycle.

Snowdrops - again

We've had barely any rain for over a week and are eagerly awaiting the snow forecast for tomorrow. The skiing has been getting thin and could do with a top up of snow.

Fantastic light yesterday again, so i made the most of it to take pictures of new angles.

But where's a squirrel when you need one? They've been hopping around the front drive and have been spotted lots.

Monday's magical light gave some great pictures, each with Ben Cruachan from a different aspect and at different times of day.
