It is two weeks since I last wrote and I have spent the majority of the intervening fortnight in bed with Covid. Hit harder than I had anticipated, the Easter weekend completely passed me by, my duvet clamped firmly over my head. When I finally surfaced on Thursday and ventured out into the garden the change was astounding. Growth everywhere and flowers bringing colour to the green in every direction. I didn’t have the energy to write a full piece this week and so yesterday I picked up my camera to record what immediately struck me in the newly sprung garden. This is an edited record of my first impressions as I stepped out of the house for the first time. At first I was transfixed by the pots just outside the back door, but finally I ventured further afield, blinking into the late afternoon sunshine to explore as much of the garden as I could easily reach.
