Today both Sue and I are starting to feel a little better, so we decided to go to the Caravan/camping show at Westpoint showground near Exeter. Last night some friends from our camp site had phoned (Dave/Margaret) , they said it was a good weather forecast and would come down here from Bristol for the day. It was then decided to meet them at the show, this we did and spent a nice couple of hours inside. When we came out at around 2.00pm it was a beautiful, fairly warm, sunny afternoon so a visit to the sea side at Exmouth was agreed.When we arrived we found it an awful job to park, there were just so many many people out doing as us and enjoying the spring like day. A walk along the promenade and a seat, a cuppa, a sandwhich and watch the world go by, with friends made a lovely day. Only problem was, we forgot to bring Sue's camera to record our day, hence no photo's.
These we took last week.
Above one of my favourite wild flowers the Cowslip, Cultivated varieties just don't have that same beautiful scent.
These gardens are just outside of our favourite watering hole the "Kings Arms"here in Teignmouth town.
Above, Cowslips out, in among the Pansy's and Primula.
These pictures were taken just outside Torquay last Sunday 20th, spring is coming early to Devon again. Yesterday we passed and a couple were actually fully out.
Next week I will post a few pictures of the Crocus out in our local park, and any other flowery signs of spring.

Old Folks

An older couple goes to the doctor wanting a baby. The doctor says take a Phial go home & bring back a sample in the morning.

The husband went back to the doc after a few days and said, "I tried it with my right hand then my left, then she tried with her dentures in & out, we really struggled but still we just couldn't get the bottle open!"

My mum always said that cowslips wouldn't grow in Devon. There certainly weren't any growing around Combe Martin.
