My last post had a lot of words – this one has mostly photographs. I just wanted so much to share with you this incredible springtime we’ve been having!
Daffodils by the River Dee. Aberdeen, 26 March 2012. Without leaves on the trees yet, the sun pours down on us when it's out!

Stonehaven. I like the little patch of yellow where the sun is hitting the gorse on the hillside.
Crescent moon and Venus over Stonehaven. 7:45 pm, 26 March 2012.
New leaves on a chestnut tree, Bon Accord Square, Aberdeen. 27 March 2012. The chestnuts are always the first out.
View from the 7th floor of the new University Library, looking down onto the Cruickshank Botanical Gardens and the spires of St. Machar's Cathedral (which is meaningful to us as my sister was married there and our children were baptised there). You can just make out the North Sea on the horizon, to the right.

Thank you to everyone for such kind comments on my last post. We are doing fine, interested to see what the next part of the journey is, and enjoying this marvellous weather. The lady at the craft shop has informed me that snow is forecast for north of here at the weekend! Perhaps March will go out like a lion yet.
I hope your week has been beautiful too (whether weather-wise or not).
