|These primroses seem really odd to me - several blooms on one stem. Have you ever seen ones like them?|
In the meantime spring is slowly taking hold which means it's nearly time to get back out on the road again. To start our year's gigging we're heading over to Yorkshire for a folk club concert in Skipton the week after Easter, then up to Scotland for a couple more - one outside Glasgow and then the third at the Edinburgh Folk Club which will be a very sad occasion for us, as the organiser there, Paddy (Eberhardt) Bort, whom we've known for nearly 30 years, passed away suddenly a few weeks back. But it will still be lovely to get back to see old friends, revisit Edinburgh for a couple of hours and have a few days up in Fife afterwards before coming back home for a mad couple of weeks running around and then off to the Continent.
And, drum rollllllll, we've started work on a new CD of original songs which I quite foolishly have committed to launching at Fiddlers Green Festival at the end of July! Deadlines focus the attention mightily .... I hope lol My energy is still not back on par - one late night and I'm half dead for two days and my other half's not a lot better at the minute - so we're going to have to be ultra careful for these next couple of trips.
Anyway the spring colours and the blasts of afternoon sunshine over the last couple of days, and the sounds of the birds as they look for nests is enough to brighten the heart.
I hope you're having a smashing weekend wherever you are and a good week to come.
