Winter cheer

Narcissus Spoirot

Good to see the smiling face of our first daffodil here, basking in Monday’s welcome sunshine. Must remember to plant more of these sun loving bulbs in a well drained places, their particular shade of primrose yellow especially good against Northamptonshire’s warm toned ironstone.

We rejoice and give thanks for earthworms,
bees, ladybirds and broody hens;
for humans tending their gardens, talking to animals,
cleaning their homes and singing to themselves;
for rising of the sap, the fragrance of growth,
the invention of the wheelbarrow
and the existence of the teapot, we give thanks.
We celebrate and give thanks.
