Old Saying:

Spring Feel:
As the winter slips away and the evenings start to get longer, I notice some trees starting to shoot and daffodils are on the vergoe of opening. I have neer seen the village as clean looking, washed by the winter floods. Its nice to see it looking so well and have it safe for moving around.
