Or, for those who didn't have Latin drummed into them at school: "Behold! Thankful and hoped-for Spring restores gaiety!"
Today the Chiffchaff arrived! Eyes peeled for the first Swallow!

Ecce! Gratum et optatum ver reducit gaudia! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Clearly we have someone with an advanced education on this site. Like you say Sean "Eyes for the first swallow". We have Chiffchaff also in the woods. Long time coming this spring, but things always catch up and it will no doubt be Summer before we know it.

Advanced education my eye! Very Happy Laughing  They kicked me out at fifteen because I wouldn't obey or submit to the tyrants! Anything I know I learned by myself. I believe schools should be abolished - they're just places to lock up kids. Teach 'em the three r's then apprentice 'em to a trade, I say. Any of 'em with a mind for learning will manage. Nowadays they're all running off to universities and from what I see, they're a good deal stupider than the old folks who had just a primary education.
