An Early Sign of Spring

   The sound of dripping water is usually a good sign at this time of year, but I think I may have a small leak in my eavestroughs as this is what was created yesterday.

It was sunny again today so it has collapsed but it was quite impressive!

Today was even milder, getting up to 4C but I'm sure we will have more winter weather before things start to grow. I spent the afternoon in the kitchen making a batch of scones - they turned out really well. They are so good straight from the oven (I did have one, just to test them, you know) but these will be consigned to the freezer for future emergencies.


  1. The scones look delicious and OF COURSE they need to be tested!
    That's an impressive icicle but a shame about the cause. Will it be simple to sort out?

    2. Yes, just an easy patching job.

  2. I like your icicle but not the reason for it being there. I could just eat one of your scones. x

  3. You have great will power Chris, I would have eaten half of those lovely scones while warm ... hopefully your won't have to replace all your eavestroughs.
