proclamation, snowdrops, six

Posted by Picasa
Two glue marks left by fly stickers that have been removed from a boarded up window.

Snow drops are already appearing in our garden. When I planted bulbs in the Autumn, very few came up, but last Spring and the Spring before I planted bunches of the still flowering bulbs, a far more successful strategy.

This morning I look up into the branches of the lime tree opposite and count five wood pigeons in the branches, their heads sunk into their bodies against the damp and cold. Half an hour later I look up again to see that there are now six.

Thought the photograph was going to be frost on glass. Well chosen. A lovely image.
