On Wednesday 3rd April the garden still
had snow lying on it but in most places it was clear. Nevertheless, the
Blackbirds were still appreciating all the apples we’d been giving them.
A friend of mine in Corsica said not to worry about
the flowers under the snow – they’d soon bounce back.I didn’t really believe her.After all, how could the delicate stem of a
Daffodil or the open bloom of a Primula survive under all that snow?
She was proved correct in most cases.As you can see there is a Daffodil or two in
the background still a bit battered and a Primula bloom that has been burned by
the snow but in most cases they looked fine on Thursday.
And on Friday I was out in the garden in the
sunshine (though it was bitter) and by Saturday it was warm enough to relax on the
patio between gardening jobs. More photos from then will appear shortly.
In the meantime, since I know some of you get withdrawal
symptoms if she’s not in a post here is someone about to discover that the woodpecker
on the Honeysuckle and Clematis pergola is plastic.

I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.
