The sun shines at last on Dorset.

At last...the sun has come out! After two weeks of rain ( which, incidentally I have been on holiday for two weeks!) These Daffodils are on the side of the lane leading to Moreton Church and so pretty in the evening sun.

Although spring is trying to show itself the general landscape still looks very wintery. We walked across the fields towards Waddock farm but it was just too wet and muddy in the woods to complete the walk.

This is some of the cottages in the village, they really haven't changed too much except for the telegraph wires going across....and the wheelie bins for the rubbish!

Our lovely neighbour across the road has made this lovely cake for my son's 18th birthday as a gift for him. She became a widow a few years ago and has taken up cake making and decorating and is amazing at it. She makes the most fabulous wedding cakes too.

A very unflattering picture of the birthday boy in his sleeping bag which his sister gave him. He is having a touring bicycle from us, he intends to cycle across Europe next year, so the sleeping bag will be an essential item!

Spring is sure taking its time showing up!

I spoke to my mother in Canada yesterday and she told me they had 28C weather on Saturday! Hope it wings it's way across the Atlantic!
