Tuesday 1st February 2022 – Kings Hill Park, Darlaston: A sunny, late winter day and that curious golden hour you get at about 2pm only at this time of year.
The crocuses are up, and so are a few (but only a few) snowdrops. How welcome the sight, how they filled me with joy – and what promise of a new year they bring.
It’s been a dull and unpleasant winter. But this must surely herald a decent year.
Please flowers, even if the weather turns again, don’t go. You are my hope.
