April the Twenty-third………At last!!!!…..After snow stopped play over the Easter break – Mike got the tatties in….Orla – Charlotte and Casablanca…..

April the Twenty-fourth……..Another beautiful sunny day……into the Orphir Hills….looking to the Hoy Hills…..what a place to live!!!

April the Twenty-fifth……..The bullocks are out! …….very much a sign of the year moving on………..

April the Twenty-sixth……………Mike  was in ‘The Office’ all day…staring at the screen…preparing a lecture for tomorrow morning.  He reached down a reference book from the shelf…..and found…

A few years ago, I received a catalogue which included images by Simon Drew  https://www.simondrew.co.uk/, some of which I cut out and sneakily stuck in Mike’s reference books – then completely forgot about them.  And today, when he was a bit ragged with heavy science stuff – he saw something which made him smile.  That’s his something of today.

April the Twenty-seventh…….Scurvy grass by the sea-wall …..smells lovely….tastes nasty…..the sailor’s friend!

April the Twenty-eighth…….When a modest Cowslip meets a red-hot Primula, you get…….The Hybrid Swarm!
