Ronald Blythe makes up his mind where he is in the liturgical year   It being too good to be inside, I check the oil tank, walk the muddy paths, and survey the snowdrops, which are legion.

Ronald Blythe gets to grips with the garden, and clears the moat THIS year’s first day’s gardening. Mostly mulchy raking. Robins for company, of course. Clouds like serial duvets overhead.
