Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things
Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things
Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things
When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad

Nice thought. An extra Bank Holiday. Makes up for the fact it's a leap year and you all have to work an extra day for nothing.

The days are already noticeably longer and spring isn't far off. Most of us live in one of the nicest towns in Britain and are surrounded by lovely countryside.

Going to work at the moment is pure joy. I walk into my garden and the thrushes are singing even though it's dark. There's large colonies of blue, great. coal and long tail tits in the shrubs and ive seen evidence of baby foxes around.
The first reticulated iris has flowered and the crocus are on their way. The Sarcococca (christmas box) and mahonia smell devine as does the winter honeysuckle.
in a few days, the first frogs will descend on the pond and before long, it willl look like a roman orgy !!!!
So next time anyone has an issue with things posted on here, go and stand outside for a little while and take in the ambience.

That sounds wonderful. My delight is my new pond, still slowly filling and currently being populated by mud, ants and vertebrae found in local ponds and streams. I can't wait till it has frogs, snakes, dragonflies etc and I can sit by it and dream.

Broad beans like frost - I hope. I've planted mine.
One of the vegetables you have to grow yourself to appreciate!
And noticed today my crocuses have emerged to join the snowdrops, primroses & violets (and a few roses still out from last year!)

Yes, it's a tad early for broad beans, unless you planted them late last year (October-ish), see link for planting advice. Now to get back onto the "nice thinking" thread (thanks to Paul!!).
Nice and mild this morning, birdies are singing and the crocuses (?) are springing up everywhere !

they are in pots and you can always cover them up. Most broad beans are quite hardy, you plant them early to stop blackfly attacking the tender tips.
Just waiting for pervy pete to spoil the ambiance.
