Cutting the third batch of forsythia to bring in to flower in a vase on the coffee table, I noticed that buds are opening. This will be the last lot I bring in … a bit of a wait now for the daffodils which are rather backward this year.
I did also manage to get out for 3/4 hour and do some gardening! Cutting down the brittle stems of last year’s tall plants: echinops, lillies and suchlike. There’s still a lot to do, of course, but alongside the path looks a bit tidier now.
