Back in the garden

98984FC1-2C0B-420E-96CB-63FD80CBB6AAI was only away for a week, but the change in the garden was remarkable. The last couple of days have been very sunny, and I swear the hosta shoots were noticeably longer yesterday evening than they had been in the morning. The rocket seeds I planted before I went away have sprouted, and the peas and potatoes are showing through. I’ve spent several hours on my knees weeding, trimming and generally reacquainting myself with the world outside the window. There cannot be a more beautiful way of heralding the end of winter than blossom on fruit trees.


About aides mémoires

This is a chronological list of things I have seen, places I have visited, and thoughts that have wandered through the space between my ears. A reading group of one; an art appreciation society limited by my preferences and prejudices; opera criticism by one who knows nothing about the subject.
