Four miles from Napton is the town of Southam. We spent an enjoyable afternoon there last week, looking in the usual mix of charity shops, and just having a wander.
The crocuses were out in front of the church which, sadly, was locked.
There was a fine path ...
... and the mosquitos were doing their sun dance.
This clump of snowdrops was right by the church.
Elsewhere in the town I saw some scrap timber being dumped in the front garden of a house undergoing renovation. I asked if I could have it - help yourself was the reply. So Ally and Ben got a season's supply of kindling when I'd removed the nails, sawn it and chopped it up.
