Isn’t it brilliant when you feel the first warm rays of sunshine occasionally, even in February! Even better when the sun is falling on a little clump of snowdrops reflecting the light back at you from their cheerful little nodding heads. I love the first sightings of snowdrops, and there were lots of them on show last week when I paid a visit to Fountains Abbey, near Ripon. A World Heritage site a right here on our doorsteps, in Yorkshire. Fantastic!
