First may I apologies to those whose comments have been awaiting approval for so long.. At the moment I am experiencing some problems upon WordPress and I am not always receiving comments in my notification reader from this blog and my main one. Some are getting through and I think I have answered them, And others I have not seen at all..
It appears even when others reply to my comments that I am not always receiving their comments back and I have to back track to their blogs to see if they have answered.. So getting around blog land is taking twice as long..
Plus I have not been spending as much time on my blogs as I have been nurturing myself more these past few weeks..
But this afternoon it was such a beautiful afternoon, and I went for a short walk with my husband.. The sun was bright and warm and the sky was cloudless for a change and a beautiful blue.. The temperature had to be 16deg C this afternoon.. So very warm for this time of year.. But as we know, all things can change, and we see NY in the USA is having snow storms, which can soon travel across Jet Streams and upset the balance again..
My Grandmother always said never cast a clout until May is out.. The meaning of this English proverb can be found at this link to those wishing to know. For me it always meant never remove our clothing, for me in those days it was a liberty bodice lol
Closer view of the many wonderful snowdrops out
We took the walk where the snowdrops were on my last post. They have now all finished flowering.
But We had a lovely surprise, and was accompanied for a short while by a Peacock Butterfly, who fluttered around us and then landed upon the muddy track of recent rains, to have a drink. We also saw one or two lone large Bumble Bees too, always good to see..
Walking today, I spotted this amazing early Peacock Butterfly in the muddy track.

I also want to say a warm welcome to those who have started to follow Dreamwalker’s Garden blog Please feel free to leave me your comments and I will get back to you as soon as I am able.. And many thanks for your follows.. I hope you enjoy what you see here.
I thought I would show you how the Orchids were now looking as there is nothing much to report in the Allotment at this time.. You can see how much they have come along from this previous post in at the end of January in the post Caring for our Orchids
Remember those Orchids on my Kitchen window sill. Well now they have come into full bloom and are delighting me with their colours.
This one has about 35 flower heads on all together and is just beautiful.
This is the tiniest of all the orchids and is in my kitchen window sill.. So I get to enjoy while working in the kitchen.
Happy Gardening and Walking
