A Diary of the Plague Year: Day 3 19 March 2020: Central Heating for Bunnies

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Last year I made a “Hugelkultur” raised bed using old logs. It works on the principle of the logs rotting down and creating heat.  It was a lot of hard slog but it’s paid off though as the bunnies, who have returned to the garden, have decided it makes a super-deluxe centrally-heated warren.


I thought the bunnies deserved a snack for sheer cleverness.

Incidentally, if you have stumbled across this diary hoping for high-minded thought and clever political comment on the “present crisis” click off now. This diary will be the random and, I expect progressively more loony, ramblings of a “self-isolating” painter and written for myself and anyone who happens to come across it.


A Diary of the Plague Year: Day 3 19 March 2020

It’s not raining. I hesitate to say that the sun is actually out but what the hell – the windows have been flung wide and with any luck I will get into the garden today. Listening to Korngold’s Violin Concerto on R3.

But first a visit to John Collins, mechanic, to get the car past it NCT check.

Some words: Bright Shade, Interlinear, Persian Iris.
Ideas for memoir: Painting of house in Portugal, mum’s specs.

Walking back from John Collins …… the beginnings of spring.
