It's spring again!

The weather has been more or less sunny for a few days now, there are crocuses blooming and tulips and hyacinths and daffodil greens breaking the ground and growing vigorously now; most of the flower beds have been freed of the old leaves and debris left from autumn and winter. And tomato seedlings sit in a pot on the windowsill.

But that's not all of the signs it's springtime again: Our tandem is now rolling on the summer tyres again, with the spike tyres back in storage for next winter, it's warm enough sometimes to venture out without a jacket and warm enough not to wear socks in the house.

And more signs: Frantic getting-ready-for-the-season orders. I have just placed one for linen fabric - delightful, high-quality, beautiful, fine-woven linen fabric suitable for fine undergarments - and suitable as embroidery ground fabric. And there are at least two more investments waiting for their turn, all complete with the curious mixture of excitement, joy and tension whether the project will soar or not. Springtime indeed!
