April 2020

Sadly, April turned out to be unique in the world’s history as at least one quarter of the planet’s population was asked to remain at home to prevent the spread of the dangerous Covid-19 virus and many, many people died. Weather wise it was a beautiful month, much less poluted than usual. We had daily daybreak walks in our local park and really appreciated spring blossoming.

This year the first frost of the winter season was on October 21st. It was quite mild but decorated the garden beautifully. Overhead geese were flying north.

Morning frost on ladies’ mantle.

It is always cheering to see the leaves of this huge willow tree near my house turn green in early April. A sign of the spring to follow.

On Christmas Eve we had a hard frost which decorated the car beautifully! The garden was pretty too and there was a nice sunrise.
