OK, so it’s not very dramatic, but just when we are starting to sense Spring, February comes along to remind us that it’s still Winter.
And following on from my previous blog post, Mary Greenwood suggested I needed to cut off the old leaves from our hellebore. So Robin did it – thanks Mary.
At Christmas we were given an Amaryllis bulb (already in its pot) and six weeks later, here it is:
That’s got to be the most successful Amaryllis I’ve ever grown.
Really I don’t have much else to talk about. Life seems very quiet. I play for the 9am Mass at St Pancras each week, and this week I’ve a couple of funerals to play for, but other than that, it’s just practising and reading which occupies me. But I will leave you with a piece of music – thank goodness for Youtube. Ruth Kerr just shared this with me, A short ride in a fast machine by John Adams. Gripping stuff!
with best wishes. Nick
