Yesterday and today we have had frosty mornings followed by warm sunshine as the day progressed. I have been digging out large fuchsia roots from the low corner of the garden where the pond is. Some of them are rotten and were easy to cut through with my spade. Others required much levering and yanking. Mucky, tiring work but enjoyable with plenty of rests sitting on the wall with my face to the sunshine.
Walking up the garden to put tools away in the shed I spotted Boggy Brae’s first open dandelion of the year—sunshine on a stalk!
