I popped out this morning and took a quick snap of the view from my house to the North. There is an annotated version here, with the main features labelled, if you want to know what it is that I see.

Things are not very green yet, still yellowed from the winter wet. That bog will green up in time and should be nicely yellow with Flag Irises in time for the Eastern phase of PS4. I love my bog. I see Short-eared Owls and Hen Harriers hunting in there. Grey Heron visit too. In the right season it is full of flowers – iris, astilbe, king cups…

It is good to look directly at what I consider to be at the heart of the island, our Community School. The chidren’s voices carry all the way down here on the wind, and the island feels really alive and vital then.

Greener pictures will come later in this phase. Spring comes late, but when she makes up her mind, she sweeps in rapidly. The fields will be lush and emerald green then, and dotted with white lambs and nesting Oystercatchers.

I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
