Green and wet
It has rained all day, almost without let up - the first proper rain we've had since before lockdown. You can see trees and shrubs breathing a huge sigh of relief and the grass has greened visibly through the day.
Hazel and I had a short walk round the green this morning and that's where this nut came from. Quite a scattering had dropped from the walnut trees. Cutting it with a kitchen knife was easy and there was a surprising amount of liquid inside. This is stage at which you'd pickle them. The different colours are beautiful, aren't they? Though that strange shape in the centre is almost a little sinister..
Not wishing to be directly political but (speaking as a professional and only saying) a certain D Raab is an absolute PR disaster, isn't he? Makes you wonder where he's had his head stuffed the last weeks and months. Our 'leaders', I despair!
Now listening to some gorgeous music with nothing ahead of me but a little cooking, a lot of reading, a large pot of tea and your blips to look at. Bliss!
Have a peaceful and happy evening xx
