Maytime in our slightly wild garden. In fact, I snapped this picture on Wednesday morning. There's a youthful freshness about Nature at this time of year. The greens are greener and blossom sings hopefully for passing insects. Migrating birds are returning, cavorting acrobatically in the blue sky above.
Yesterday morning I saw a beautiful bullfinch close by our kitchen window and later in the day, I fired up our lawnmower for the first time this year. Last month two rows of potatoes were planted further up the garden and soon I'll put courgette seeds in little pots of compost before planting them in the vegetable plot and there'll be runner beans and peas and maybe leeks too.
Meantime, Buddha sits serenely under a laurel bush beneath one of our apple trees - watching the sparrows and reminding me of Thailand.
