buds' initial burst
blood red splay reaches for light
hazel springs to life


n.b. Valentine’s Day, yesterday, the middle of February, which is noted in Slovenia as the day plants start flowering.

In Norfolk, England, the appearance of the sinister Jack Valentine (a man who traditionally goes about villages, knocking on back doors, before leaving sweets for children) is likely to be quite rare these days, but spring seems to have begun.

Long-tailed tits, blue tits and great tits all noticeably active in hedgerows and woodland.

After this Friday night with

Saturday to come


n.b. Friday evening’s have a special energy. I rather enjoyed this evening in watching ‘Dr No’ AND there’s still the footy to come tomorrow. Too excited to sleep!

On St. Valentine’s Eve do you…

Hesitate between

Silence or loving gesture?

Let your heart speak out


n.b. For once people, give your bloody brain a rest! It’s only once a year after all.
