It really is a glorious, sunny day and feeling quite warm. I thoroughly enjoyed walking round the Roman camp this afternoon with Fern, although the views were not at their best because of a little haze in the distance. The crocuses in the garden are delighting in the sun. Many years ago we planted hundreds of naturalizing bulbs and they have spread very well. At the beginning there were three colours - mauve, white and cream, but they have all reverted to mauve. All the same, when they are in bloom en masse they look terrific.
