WG Grace Leads by Example on Great Wilbraham Rec

What a delight to see some cricket (albeit a net practice) on the Rec this afternoon.  WG Grace had turned out to help out some of the youngsters

Caught in flight, keen ly observed by Walter

On our Corona-walk this morning...

The beauty of spring in full swing this morning as we walked between Great Wilbraham an Little Wilbraham.  Mostly hedgerows, but also a cottage garden in Little Wilbraham which will be well known to locals. Interesting to non-residents will be to see where the principal local landowner has had a hedge, which runs beside the road between the two villages, laid rather than flayed.  Thank you Richard Wright!

Spring Flowers, Quince Leaf-Burst, Zaphod the Miniature Narcissus

I love this time of year in the garden - the trees are beginning to burst into leaf and the delicate yellow flowers of spring are in their prime condition.

Last autumn we went to Scotsdales Garden Centre  in the autumn and availed ourselves of bulbs by the bucketful.  Good value and excellent results  we had a mixed bunch of narcissi including some miniatures with are only 5 or 6 inches tall and, like Zaphod Beeblebrox, have multiple heads on a single stem.
