Time has a habit of distorting memories, so perhaps last March the tulips were eager to flower whilst the hellebores was in full bloom. On the other hand, it seems particularly unlikely that the snowdrops and tulips were out at the same time.
Then again, I forget that we are heading swiftly towards April. The year feels like a ride on a slide at a theme park: difficult at the start and descending towards what?
Being optimistic by nature, I am hoping the future will include trips to the increasingly long list of places I want to visit. The latest is an agroforestry tour around East Anglia.
There is actually going to be one at the beginning of May: Agroforestry Open Weekend. Looks like the only people visiting will be those in East Anglia, or at a pinch residents of South Lincs, Cambridgeshire and Essex, but I’ve had an assurance from one of the farmers involved that they will be holding similar days further into the future.
In the meantime, I’ll fiddle some more with the spinning wheel and think about netting up the Nine-Star Broccoli before the pigeons eat it all!!
