|The Settringon Beck, outside my house, in spate after a downpour. Being close to its source it rises and falls very rapidly, soon returning to its normal narrow bed.
|The dismembered lime-tree on Thursday, when the size of the tree was more easily appreciated. These main trunks are 20 m long. Luckily nobody was around as it came down.
|Between depressions have been calm, bright and quite mild days; Galanthus elwesii 'Comet' flowering here on Friday.
|A good dinner makes one forget the storms - a fig frangipane for friends last Saturday:
|and so does a nice fire, here burning the cones of Pinus x schwerinii.
