A gentle walk this afternoon diverted me from my snivelling for a while. My spirits were lifted by bud upon bud, shoot upon shoot, a sky free from its usual dampening blanket and a camellia looking like an explosion in a Barbie factory. More healing than a cup of Lemsip (other proprietary cold remedies are obviously available).
This mahonia leaf is a nigh on perfect match to the colour of my nose. sniff sniff
