Hello April………. as the days lengthen and the earth begins to soak up the suns warmth, the countryside is no longer a dun coloured wilderness but lush green pasture dotted with little groups of rain washed sheep, the trees coming into leaf and the catkins blowing in the breeze. Easter is near as we celebrate new beginnings. All the little birds now coming forth into our gardens and as the sing their little song high up in the trees. Breeds such as curlews, dotterel and lapwing along with robin, thrush and blackbird, were all recorded as being on sale in the markets of London in the hungry 1940’s, as indeed were fledgling rooks for rook pie!!! 😝
Showers and sunshine have brought tender new growth to the hawthorns and dandelion in the meadow, I notice as I take my daughter Paris along our field, equipped with a basket and she is treated to my annual lecture on what to pick and where!! 😂 (bless her she loves it) what leaves and flowers are edible, dandelions being 1st of the wild gatherings along with violets and primroses, chickeeed and fresh watercress, one peppery and dark and one mild and pale – to be gathered for the salad bowl.🌱🧚♀️
