What is the thing that sells the most when it snows in the UK? Apparently it used to be camera films. I read that in a lovely little book called ‘Let it snow’ by Rosemarie Jarski (2004, Newholland Press). With digital cameras I don’t know what the equivalent is but perhaps there is a parallel statistic about pictures posted on the internet. Anyway, apologies to those of you still in the midst of winter, but snow is still just a little bit exciting here.

and this daffodil is just about to burst into bloom – a sign of spring indeed.
