serendipity, or so it would seem. Today the Times has a strange little article all about our favourite February flower, the snowdrop, otherwise known as Galanthus (the boss has confessed he thought they were narcissi until I told him). Obviously there are lots of different varieties occurring naturally, hence presumably the beautiful variations along the valley. I am not a galanthophile, but a floraphile. And NO to badger culls, the place is barren enough as it is what with herbicides and pesticides and fertilisers and fences and mires and muck spreaders.

and here they are as seen, the Inny is the river on the left, and just through the trees you can glimpse the Tamar. After two hours walking (running in my case) we all went off to the Rising Sun near Altarnun. The Rising Sun is a good pub, and Kiwi Jim is a good bloke. Try it! Sunday lunch is wonderful. I know because we got to a taste of the beef.
