Happy Easter in lockdown

What a way to spend Easter.

While the country is stuck at home, the waves still roll gently on to the beach from an incredibly calm sea (according to the photos on social media I see from my coastal friends).

Here in Dorset, the hedgerows are bursting with flowers – wood anemone, bluebells, primroses, stitchwort, celandine, dandelion and wild garlic, with gypsy lace and campion just waiting in to the wings to join in the chorus.

Birdsong is all the more poignant in the days of coronavirus. A robin is making a nest above the workbench.

And above the highest point in Dorset, the sky, that wonderful sky, is full of little fluffy clouds.

I hope, wherever you are, you can at least take joy and sustenance from an unfiltered sky, in all its ever-changing moods.

Enjoy your Easter as best you can. Let’s raise a glass to being with family and friends when the lockdown has passed.

Happy Easter.

That’s about it.
