February, a good month.
February is the month of the International Quilt fair at Llangollen. The quilt pictured above is from last year's Fair, and was made by a member of a French quilting group. It reminds me of Susan Hill's "The Magic Apple Tree",
Just the other side of Llangollen is a small church at Llantysilio where the churchyard is completely smothered in snowdrops at this time of the year. So a happy day in Llangollen means a visit to the quilt fair followed by a visit to this church to enjoy the snowdrops. The church also has a special snowdrop service each year.
There are other good things about February: light is returning rapidly, it's still light at half past six in the evening and I rejoice!
Plus I have just been Highly Commended in the Slipstream Open Poetry Competition. And my friend Pat Borthwick won it!
All good stuff.
