I’ll start with the same words I used in the November newsletter: ‘And so it continues! Normal service will not be resumed any time soon.’ Not what we’d hoped for. I’d like to share with you though a picture taken in our garden yesterday morning after a heavy overnight frost. A stubborn rosebush is still producing blooms, despite all setbacks, so let’s keep that image in our minds at the beginning of the new year. We WILL get through this and have that summer tea.
