At this time, we expect everything to be dead or hibernating. But a walk along The Thyme Track [above] proves and disproves that expectation. Dead leaves, dead grass. Yes…Rain, lots of it. Yes, and no… Nothing growing. No… Bleached colours, no flowers, bare twigs and branches. Not everywhere, if you look carefully… No sign of procreation… except this bird’s nest left from last year and being guarded noisily by blackbirds.
If you look for life, it is there.
5 to remember
la esperanza – the expectation
