No blogs for the last few days as I have been laid low by a bug but now am slowly on the mend. Managed a walk along the Exe to Topsham from home today.
It is still pretty cold outside and winds are still coming from the north but the blackthorn is in full flower.
The skies over Topsham had quite a lot of blue in them and although it was cold when the sun was behind the clouds it was very pleasant and warm when the sun came out. At such points peacock and small tortoiseshell butterflies abounded!
