I went back to the secret wood yesterday. there were many more anemones this time. soon the nettles will smother some of them, but I think other parts will reward a further visit. so here is a batch of photos, I didn’t want to edit, so you get the lot.

the primroses are still going strong, and the roebuck’s fraying post is even more emphatically marked with scratches, I suppose most of the velvet must be off his antlers by now. I would love to see him.

lastly an indulgence, here is a haiku.

white starry flowers
delicate porcelain cups
drink down sun and rain.
