From this afternoon’s walk:
The native blackthorn is not a particularly pretty bush, particularly with it’s sharp spines, but it’s an important part of the ecology of this area, and we’re pleased we have a fair amount of it on our block. It’s the time of year when the sprays of tiny, star-shaped blossoms are coming out – and it is quite pretty in flower.
The writing continues – although I just cut out 200 of the words I wrote this afternoon. I may be able to put them somewhere else later, I’m not sure yet. Now it’s time to cook a quick dinner (fettucine and greens – broccoli, asparagus, green beans and spinach, with a touch of garlic, anchovies and chilli – yum!) and then I’ll be back to the computer for the evening session.
