birch-twigs-winter-480x640

I looked up at the birch outside our front door. She is all ready for spring with those tight-closed catkins in twos and threes at the end of her twigs. Meanwhile on our house wall, the Mermaid rose has forgiven me for cutting her back so hard. Lots of little red buds in the nodes behind the cuts. Now next door’s building work is over may she flourish again!
