Another Mixed Day. Sun, Dark Clouds, Warm then Cold…… But no Rain !


Like the Curates Egg, today has been good in parts…. and to be fare not that bad but could have been better.  Bluebells in the woods really are on their last legs now,  battling away in the ever increasing shade below the trees and struggling against the  ferns….



We have  easing regulations on Lockdown,  well in England that is.  Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are being more cautious…….  Perhaps they are wiser.

One of the Restrictions to be eased relates to  being able to play Golf!  Social Distancing measures, two players only and new Golf etiquette rules apply.

Our local Course though remains closed till the 25th. May

But no one thought to tell this little fellow.. well into the swing of things. …. Go for it Tiger!


New growth is now everywhere.  Cultivated or wild, tree or shrub, delicate or bold, just an abundance of  new life and  good things to come….

Yep, things are starting to brighten up….


Encouraging in tough times and lets not forget…

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

    1. No rain of any note since the months of floods at the beginning of the year…… so deep down moisture and above average temperatures and it makes all the difference to growth 🙂
