This month is always a special one, we are usually guaranteed some warmth on our bones and this year it feels a long time in coming. I haven't had a Dartmoor winter get to me so much since I was a teenager here. Although it is one of my favourite times for light and colour, at times the heaviness become cloying and I find it hard to breathe. I yearn for the lightness of the sea.
The bees are tired and hungry and also need the sun to warm their bodies, nourish their hives and relax the little muscles worn with the task of keeping warm.
Sunshine comes in many forms and especially my birthday. I was showered with visions of loveliness and warm golden love. My friends and family…..they know me well and are a superbly talented bunch! let me share with you some of it.
