It is ridiculously warm today (by English standards) and one of those wonderful days where you can smell the flowers, and pollen in the air makes the view hazy. The crocuses are budding in the rose beds, and the blossom on the cherry tree that prematurely tried to flower at Christmas is starting to make a fresh appearance.
Alfie has been annoying all morning since we got back from our run, wanting to go in and out of the garden every ten minutes so I ended up staying out with him this afternoon attempting to take photos of him for Eva’s vast photo collection.
I really like the tree he was trying to dig up – anyone know what it is? It is super wiggly and has caterpillar-like flower things budding from it.
