There was a great deal of cheeping in the front porch so I decided to keep watch - and the swallows have had more chicks! Mum and Dad were flying in and out all afternoon:
and by climbing up on the table and pointing the camera in what I hoped was the right direction I got a picture of one of the chicks:
I went to pull up some potatoes and beans for dinner - to have with our joint of pork (and 'r' in the month so pork is back on the menu) and saw how all the flowers have finally decided to come out
See - a bit of sunshine and the world is a brighter place.
