When I drive through Aspull and see these daffs I always think of Owd Ron.

Lovely photo. I love daffs and Aspull always looks particularly lovely in Spring.

Was in Wigan recently and saw lots of crocuses and snowdrops. Lovely to see. Will be May at the earliest before anything blooms back home.

Fine photo, Dennis.
Broady, snowdrops in my garden too - in the NE and on the coast. When they appeared thought I'd overdone the whisky nightcap the evening before!

I didn't know you'd been back to Wigan, Broady. Hope you enjoyed your visit.

Golden angels dawn their heads,
Strewn crisp guardians lie down dead,
Seasons tenure now vacate ,to wind blown landlord’s proud lost fate .
Proudly smiling the fresh new fawn ,
Welcomes sunshine to a brand new morn..

I remember Dr Johnson's Greenough St. It was like walking in a Cloggers with benches round each wall. Dark and dismal. .
