Leap Year Monday


Happy February 29th! It only comes around once every four years so enjoy this 'extra' day! I was delighted today to find this gorgeous bunch of crocuses reminding me that spring is truly close at hand.


There has been a hint of spring the past few days, with sun and clear blue skies which are so welcome!
I made the most of the day and walked around Hillsborough Forest park and fort.

There were lots of swans on the lake.


Another view of the Fort with the spire of St Malachi's Parish Church on the left.


Glad you could visit and love to read your comments!

  23. What a pretty view that was, across the snowdrops to the castle. Snowdrops are finished over here and there are, alas, no castles. It's now time for daffodils and camellias.
