More snow and ice in the middle of last week
left us more or less housebound.
It was cheering to see some of the vegetable and flower seedlings
popping up...tomatoes,cauliflowers, onions, sweet peas etc.
The peach that was grown from a stone and the Christmas Rose
are also blossoming and budding again in the covered yard.
The snow had fallen and had frozen and we had been looking forward
to going to a concert at the City Hall where our youngest grandson
was taking part in the choir. It had been organised by a project
that encourages music making in the city for every child and young
person in partnership with families, schools and other organisations.
It wasn't easy getting there in the bad weather, but either by
foot or tram friends and families managed to gather at the venue
and we enjoyed a wonderful afternoon of different styles of music
from the children, young people and professional educators and musicians.
