Home thoughts from abroad

O to be in England
Now that April's there


We are on the first day of our holiday in Madeira but I am still thinking of my gardens back home!


I will be able to post about some wonderful plants.



The first of my narcissus at Worsbrough.


I am glad I managed my monthly Worsbrough visit before I left.


I am not sure all my plants are appreciated in Barnsley.



Pity the witch hazels will be past it when I get home.



Brenda won’t miss the wonderful over-powering sickly pervading smell.



I wonder what the weather's like...

Hope I gave the houseplants enough water…
Wonder if it will get too cold for them...
Hope Poppy's ok...
Did I lock the door!


And whoever wakes in England
Sees, some morning unaware
That the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf
Round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf,
While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough
In England now!
