A burst of blue

Okay, I exaggerate slightly but the glory-of-the-snow and anemones were a delight to my eyes this evening. Especially as it is the end of term and I was held up in traffic after a lorry was engulfed in flames on the M1.

The high winds we’ve been experiencing over the last 24 hours have not, thankfully, done any damage in my garden. I guess I should touch wood at this point because they don’t look to be abating. However, the larger trees seem to hardly swaying, which I hope suggests their root systems are robust – and the extra soil round the two youngest apple trees must be anchoring them down.

Roll on better weather!


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.

  1. Wishing you better weather indeed. The anemones look so nice bright and blue!

  2. The flowers are loking good. I too am looking forward to a drop in the wind.

  3. It’s such a reassuring sight when we start to see colourful plants again. The daffodils are blooming in my garden – a sure sign that Spring is almost here!
