Off wandering again . . .


In the morning I am leaving all this behind

the peacock's new tail


my lilac bush flowering for the first time since it
almost died  due to drought 
nigh on ten years ago


and the splendour of apple blossom everywhere.


I am not sure how I can leave my garden in full spring finery
but the chance to go up north to the desert country
does not come my way often 
and when it does, I jump at it.

So dear friends, I will be out of phone and internet reach
for the next 12+ days
wish me luck . . .

  14. Peacocks are wonderful though rather noisy birds. I hope the garden doesn't get too out-of-control in your absence.

  26. How lovely spring looks in your part of the world. I was enjoying autumn up here in the Northern Hemisphere, but you've left me feeling nostalgic for lilac and apple blossoms. Hope you have a great trip out to the desert. Stay safe: everything seems to be potentially lethal in your lovely country! All the best, Bonny
