March was a mixed bag of weather, but we managed a walk every day. Usually just around the village greens and along to Lord's Hill and back up the lane to home. We had quite a bit of wet weather, with the garden underwater, and other days fine and sunny. We also had some very windy days and nights.

Not having been able to go very far due to the lockdown, this post is about the flowers.
This is Pelargonium cotyledonis which is flowering in the conservatory. Originating from the island of St. Helena where it is also known as Old Man Live Forever. The plant grows like a small bonsai tree.

We are now in Lockdown number 3 and cannot leave our own locality. We are so lucky that we live in such a lovely area and have several walks we can go on to vary things a bit. However, it has been very wet, and we had snow, and ice, so most of the walks we would normally have done are very muddy, so we have mostly stuck close to home around the village.
We have left the village twice since lockdown began. We have both had our first covid vaccines, in Cranleigh four miles away. It was extremely well organized. Brian had his the last week of January and me the first week of February. We now have to wait until Aril for the second one.
Our second outing was to get our cars MOT'd and serviced. A bit further away, all the way over to Normandy in Surrey.
We are hoping that with the virus numbers going down we might be able to venture back to the shops, but for the time being, we are still relying on home deliveries for our shopping.
The following are some photo's taken on our winter walks.
