Spring is here...although it doesn't feel like it!

That's lovely! Haigh Hall holds special memories of childhood, travelling down through the plantations on the "tractor" on sunny Sunday afternoons; you could go into the hall then and I recall a room with a big glass cabinet full of musical instruments. That was it in our childhood.....Haigh Hall or Wigan Park on Sundays, and half a day at Southport a couple of times a year.

I have fond memories of walking to Haigh Hall,up the canal towpath.I remember seeing various weapons of war and armour at the hall upstairs in a long gallery.Wonder what happened to it all.

The bluebells are running behind 3 weeks it said on the tele, latest they've been since 95.

Bluebells, dont they like a wooded area?

Thanks so much for this; I've been waiting all winter for my favorite flowers!! And we've had such a mild winter in our part of Ontario, that I saw some in bud today, just along the street.

To Jean,
If the bluebells are running behind same as 95, hopefuly there might be a long hot summer ahead, I remember that summer what a scorcher !! :-D
