Yellow and red

Once more, the front garden has flowers to greet me when I leave the house and return home.

The tete-a-tete daffodils are at their best right now, dotted about the garden – and the larger daffodils are pushing through. Unlike others I have seen at the entrance to the estate, though, they aren’t even in bud yet.

Inside there is also joy in colour. However, this time it is some willow stems, which I collected from Old Sleningford Farm at the weekend.

I couldn’t resist the red and yellow of the willow bark and realised immediately they were just what I needed for a vase sitting on the piano. I hope they last a long time.


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.
