February 26th 2020 - Here I am sitting by the fire with my pipe and slippers, trying to keep warm with the remaining slabs of peat from my ever diminishing pile. Snow, sleat, gales, wind, rain, hail these are just a few of the conditions I experienced this morning when I popped my head out the door to fill up my peat bucket!
February is almost over and it won't be long before we see the signs of spring. On Skye there are already some leaf buds on the trees and daffodils starting to form flowers.
Still plenty of time for more winter weather but at least we are moving in the right direction now.
