Is there no end to spring delights? On Sunday we only walked a kilometre. And yet we found yesterday’s blossom already falling, a walnut tree budding, fan leaves of a beech unfurling, a pair of Mandarin ducks preening, crabapple and horse chestnut breaking into sudden flower, three lads in their early teen caring for a baby on the grass, the green globes of a poplar dangly (that’s a technical term!) opening, and a conifer in the act of forming a cone.
