Our first outing of the year took us to Walsingham to to see the snowdrops. We timed it well as they looked to be in full bloom. The weather was kind to us - not sunny but at least milder than we've been used to recently. To extend the trip we crossed the ford at Little Walsingham and then went on to Wells. We spent a few moments on the quay looking at the boats and then headed for home.

Donna brought in a selection of Chinese snacks and some chopsticks and we had a laugh with Chinese horoscopes. Betty's year is the dog so we did a lot of barking, Monica's a monkey - Betty's pictured being a monkey and Olive had everyone in stitches with her cock a doodle do as she's a Rooster!

John Harris came to play the piano for us. His repertoire is amazing and he can play most things by ear. (This is one of many talents as he can speak no end of languages too!) A special request from Sylvia was The Blue Danube that went down very well.
We're getting ready for the summer and overhauling the garden. We've started on the bit along the road side and will do the rest once the builders have moved on. Donna's friend Rita and Nick have been putting in sleepers which will give a good edge to the border and allow us to put in more compost as it's very dry in the summer. Plans are for fragrant roses, colourful grasses and ornamental trees with a good scattering of bulbs. Once the builders' hut has gone we will put in a proper raised bed so that everyone can get their hands dirty.
