digging and delving in amongst the trees, creating more hummocks and dips and piles of freshly turned earth
It's all rather wild and woolly down there, but as I was checking the earthworks, to make sure the neighbour's fence wasn't in danger of collapsing under the strain, I found this
Isn't it lovely?
Just a simple old bottle really, but how marvellous to find it unbroken, waiting there in the soil to be recovered and brought into the house, where it could be cleaned and made to catch the spring sunshine.
And in the garden, which I have neglected over the winter, there are other signs of Spring
a ribbon of daffodils in their second year of flowering - how lovely they will be in another couple of years when they've clumped up and had a few more added to fill in the spaces
hellebore and jonquil,
grape hyacinth and pulmonaria, yet more daffodils and hellebore
and Wol, enjoying the warm sunshine by the flowering currant
Happy Easter everyone
