Having survived the Ides of March without major mishap and, although we can still see snow,
we feel that with the new moon
we can start early Equinox celebrations.
The bees have sucked dry the crocus flowers
But being in Wales we are or course surrounded by daffodils
they are everywhere
More exciting are the fritillary buds
The birds are busy
gathering nesting material
They are also noisy, in the case of this Song Thrush in a good way
and are always happy to have the modest Dunnock around
The Woodpecker combines defiant colours with modest behaviour – always using the back of the feeders
So, as the sun shines
illuminating the buzzards overhead
and even making sheep look glamourous
we prepare the chair on the porch
pretending we will have some time to sit down during the next six months.
One thought on “Between The Ides and The Equinox”
I certainly hope you do have some time to sit down – you deserve it!
