Yule Be Sorry

Walking the dog yesterday morning I noticed this pretty flower… which I’m told is a perrywinkle.
What is it doing flowering in December and will it be “sorry”?

Merry Christmas

A huge thank you to the Bergh Apton elves that got together a Christmas parcel for us.

In some ways this has been a difficult year, and yet it has also bought moments such as these.
Moments that drive home how lucky we are to live in such a loving and supportive community.
Thank you and Happy Christmas one and all.



…a few feet from it as the Windhover performed, stationery on the gusting wind in the evening & poor light, before it came to rest on the straggly thorn. What a privilege.
