February is upon us and the snowdrops are poking their heads through the cold frosty ground. We have some music, laughter and food for the brain, to lift your spirits as we head for the spring. Remember that February is the month for snowdrop walks (see last months post for details) across the Scottish Borders. This year we are delighted that photographer Jim Gordon has offered us some of his wonderful photo’s for our blog. You can see more of his photo’s on Twitter @JimGordon46 or buy his prints on Ebay (jimgordon2010).
