A lovely Spring day - not all that warm, but dry, breezy and very sunny - it will suit me. I had a coffee morning Zoom invite for ten this morning with friends W,S,C and M - I got there happily at just before ten and had ten minutes chat before I suddenly left and found it impossible to get back again. Sad because we were having a nice chat but a couple of minutes after I had signed off I had a phone call that was important and I would have had to answer it anyway so not quite as bad as it might have been. Instead I did my walk round the block with Percy - didn't see a soul and really enjoyed the fresh air. On my return after a quarter of an hour my neighbour M was in her front garden and we distance-chatted for five minutes before I put Percy away and came in.
How pretty the gardens are looking - literally hundreds of daffodils and tulips are out and a fair smattering of grape hyacinths, primroses, polyanthus, pansies and tulips as well. They are all flowering well in spite of the wretched virus. Sitting here typing this with the occasional look out of the window I have seen at least half a dozen butterflies and numerous bumble bees. Everything goes on as it always has done except that things are not the same and now the our Prime Minister has himself gone into Intensive Care has, I think, brought it home to us all how very serious it all is.
The back patio beckons. I have been 'threatening'
to sweep it seriously for the past week or two - today's the day. I don't know whether I can manage it all in one go - time will tell. Take great care one and all.
