March and a friend who tried and failed to catch the Northern lights over East Anglia asked if an Aurora Borealis ring might be possible. My scrambles along muddy hedgerows started to yield blossoms as well as skeletal remains. A visit to the RA to see 'Spain and the Hispanic World' was followed by a second brief visit to Barcelona to stay with youngsters pursing Catalan and Spanish classes in their spare time. THIS time taking in the magnificent Gaudi Park & the tranquil Joan Miró Foundation for the first time. Plus of course, returning to the Sagrada Familia and the Museu Nacional for the modern wing. The clocks are forward and spring is at last in motion.
