  1. I get a melancholy feeling when I look at decorations like this, which seem to have been left behind. A week or so ago I walked past a building whose ornamental cabbages (I think that's what they're called) hadn't survived the winter freezes. Knowing what they're supposed to look like in their glory, I was saddened.

  11. The the vivid looking colours against the white snowy background makes me really belief spring is coming. I felt it this morning ; the wind was softer and the sky clear.
    Thank you for confirming my hopes Lynn.
