Prepping the Lodge on a Tuesday! Something must be wrong! No change over at Christmas and New Year falls so that each group has the festive day in the middle of their stay.
As I always do I was looking for a blip while there. The guests had very kindly emptied the bins so I didn't even have the excuse of walking to the bins. However, we have a patch of Bluebells that grow in the gravel beside the path round to the BBQ area. I was surprised to see the first shoots peeping up through the gravel. No sign of Snowdrops in our neighbour's garden a couple of feet away over the fence.
