Happily driving along this afternoon, on our way to explore a new walk, and I was unexpectedly accosted by the green eyed monster. This is why :
A shepherd's caravan, recently sited at the top of a field, looking south. I want one. I've always wanted one. When I was a little girl, my cousin and I used to play in an original, old one, on my uncle's farm. So now, every time I go along that road I am going to be tinged with green. It's even got a woodburning stove. It's all a bit of a blow.
We enjoyed our walk. It wasn't quite as interesting as I thought it was going to be, but Traprain Law, to the south, was looking moody and marvellous. And I found a green cabbage on the side of the road, which had fallen off the back of a tractor, so that was a bonus!
Back in the wood, the snowdrops are looking beautiful, and probably at their best. Once the flowers have gone over, I will transplant a few, while they are "in the green".
