the view from our front window, last weekIt’s a nice time of year. Several days in the last week have had that sort of spring warmth that makes me feel optimistic again. Our cherry tree put on its usual fine display.
It’s past its best now (the picture is from last week) and at the moment the lawn is covered in a blizzard of downed petals – “rough winds doth shake the darling buds” of September and all that.
