A very strange Easter Day, unlike any other there has ever been. It is so very quiet here on the estate - just the odd person passing on their allowed exercise and maybe half a dozen cars and that's all. I had a short walk round the block with Percy: I didn't feel at all like it but I know if I don't struggle round, a couple of weeks and I shalln't be able to.
I had a stroll out into my garden. Things seem to be visibly growing every day. The place where I am badly infected with Mares Tail weed has been absolutely full of early bulbs and they have been beautiful. The weed has not poked through yet - but it will and then, when it has grown to the required length (20cms) it will get one more weed kill. I don't expect it to do any good but my gardener and I have decided to plant the area with shrubs in the Autumn and just keep hoeing the weed off as it appears next year.
As the day has gone on the sky has clouded and a sharp wind has risen - tomorrow will be
chillier. But there is still a feeling of Spring in the air and let's cling on to that - we need a bit of hope. Take care everyone.
