The irises that were pretty just being green have suddenly shown their colours. So pretty, with yellow accents. Bright and cheery on a rainy, rainy day. Or it was until about an hour ago and now, I can see blue sky and silvery white clouds! Hooray for sunshine!
And then I noticed these outside. Snowdrops nodding their pretty heads in the garden. Sights like this cheer me up no end on days when it feels like winter will last forever. Mild as winters are here, the grey dull dreariness gets tiresome.
Aid to Haiti is slowly arriving. Our physician friend reported that they were unable to land in Port au Prince when they had hoped because of the limited runway space and priority being given to crews with search dogs. However, they are now in Haiti, relieving medical personnel that must be exhausted after working constantly since the earthquake happened.
