Originally, this post was going to be about mulching the blueberries with coffee grounds

but after being out and about, I noticed the crab apple tree coming to life. Underneath it is a flower, whose name I didn’t know until last weekend, when mum found it for me.  

Chionodoxa luciliae (Glory-of-the-snow) must have come in on another plant, as it is not one that I have knowingly acquired. Hence, the bafflement about what it could be.

In the rain, as it is today, I had that feeling of really being in a wood, which was there last time it rained as well. However much the Glory-of-the-snow add to the atmosphere, though, I will continue digging them up round the crab apple tree, so that they don’t restrict its growth.


About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
