Morning all :-D

Sun is shining, sky is blue, but the sea in the distance is hazy this morning. My two mimosa trees are just about to burst into bloom - they always cheer up my garden in February.

I can see up to the Brecon Beacons in one direction and the Bristol Channel (just) in other direction across Vale of Glamorgan. Beautiful, sunny and dry day here so far - not even that cold (45C).:-D :-D :-D

And in the foreground are black bin bags with general rubbish and recycleable bags with tins or cardboard blown all over the road. Some of them have now been there since Thursday 24 Jan as we had no weekly collection that day nor Thurs 31st Jan. :-( :-( Whether we get a collection this week is in the lap of the gods :-( :-

Apart from them being in the same state as those of Prickles Babes, the trees at the bottom of the garden are in a horizontal position rather than vertical owing to a very strong Westerly wind that is howling. It is sunny though but bitterly cold.

Through the houses/bungalows I can see the school traffic creeping along the road and further away I can see Robinswood Hill. And a very grey sky. On the ground in the garden are two chaffinches and two blackbirds looking for breakfast.

:-( :-( :-D
