It was a lovely taste of spring before the bad weather hit this afternoon, which was expected as the three Alpine passes around us have been closed due to snow this weekend.
Walking in the red zone is bittersweet; so many lost houses, homes, lives, and plans. We enjoy the extensive park left behind, but it still has a graveyard feeling, a lingering feeling of loss for those who have lost the right to call this beautiful place home... but the remaining plants and trees are still enjoyed by many people

It has been a long winter - my father has not been well and I had some months off work. Poppy has been a wonderful companion - often snuggled on Dad's knees.
and I have a new love... Maddie. She is polydactyl so she has fat feet with thumbs... and has been a lively addition to the house.
Sorry I have been gone so long - I still read lots of your blogs and will try to pop back here more often!
