A whiter shade of pale

Just when it looked like it would soon be safe to go out, the snow has returned and everything has turned a whiter shade of pale. And it's still snowing....

Here's something to remind you that we live in a green and pleasant land most of the time: 

Checking back, I see that the RHS photo of the year was taken on 26 June 2009, 10 days after Steve's diagnosis - the same day he walked into town to collect his bus pass - and then walked all the way home again.  Talk about stubborn!  

However, that fighting attitude has kept him going for the last eight months or so, and long may it continue to do so. There are times when his defences are weak.  Being stuck indoors most of the time for the last nine days because of the snow has not been easy - too much time on his hands to ponder his fate and get a bit maudlin. 

I think we both need to get out and about and see a bit of colour in the world.  The novelty of a blanket of white covering everything is wearing a bit thin.  Roll on spring!
