It's only Febuary but my garden has woken up. It will be some one and a half month before the clocks change, but the days are already noticeably longer then in winter proper, and the trees are having a go! Small leaves are appearing everywhere. Soon the hawthorn will be in bloom! And soon I will be spending considerable amounts of time in the garden again. Nice!
This blog started as a tool to keep my Dutch friends informed on my whereabouts when I moved abroad. It quickly also became an external memory for my own use. It largely failed as a stage for discussions on whatever is worth discussing. And it has become a way of sharing my scientific knowledge with a lay audience. And who knows, it could become even more! And whatever it is you are looking for among all this: welcome.
