I have been fitting in where I can to make my notes – so it is a Wednesday as I write this.
Weather was unsettled. Winter seemed to have returned with a vengeance, though it didn’t seem to affect plant growth. There was a massive spurt in the week and all was cool, lush freshness. There was more birdsong and the pigeons were swooping about as usual. I want to film them. Managed to capture the newts on film (much more elusive) so why not the pigeons? The catkins have changed colour from the greyish fur to a wonderful creamy green. Herb Robert is almost flourescent – maybe because of its reddish stalks?
