One coat of blacking went on yesterday, on a gloriously fine day. Sadly today there's been intermittent rain and even a scattering of hail, so no more painting was possible.
Getting the first coat on yesterday
It's our last week at the lovely Tattenhall Marina next week, but it's looking likely that we'll only be back on our pontoon for a couple of days. Ah well, such is life, we can't change nature. And our tiny challenge pales into insignificance when we imagine the people in UK whose homes are under water from the persistent rain of the current winter here.
Daffodils, snowdrops, crocuses and primroses
On a brighter note, spring is most definitely starting to show her face and colours. Last year the daffodils didn't bloom in many areas until at least April - and we're constantly being told how mild this winter has been.
