I can definitely recommend this Daphne for given you a boost this time of year. Not sure what it’s exact name is. I can see it from the sitting room when lying on my settee and it is scented too! You have t go outside to catch the scent of course. Look at all those… Read More February Flowers
The title is almost certainly an Americanism but never mind; they can be quite striking. I read on Friday that during the latest lockdown people in this country are exercising less and watching more television. For myself it has been quite the opposite.
