I arrived back yesterday from another visit to the UK. Unfortunately I am still not feeling so well and so did not do all the things I had planned, but I did manage to meet up with all my green woodworking friends at Bradfield Woods.
It very quickly felt like I had not been away for one year.
Some of them were busy installing a second stove for cooking and heating,
everyone spent much time eating and talking, and some were even doing some green woodworking!!
I arrived back hereto find that spring has suddenly arrived. When I left on 28th February the temperature was just above freezing, and it has been the same every day during my absence, with much sunshine also. The trees have lost their thick white coating of snow and ice and are green again, the surface snow on the ground has melted and that makes it much easier to get around now.
Last night when I was out just after dark, I was treated to the most spectacular display of Northern Lights I have ever seen. The whole sky from west to north to east was full of colour as the green, blue, yellow and red light danced across the sky. Unfortunately I did not have my camera with me but you can see for yourself what it was like via Arctic Color. Here are the images taken from webcam number 3 three yesterday and these images show particularly well what I was seeing!!
