Glorious shades of green

Spring palette from my window

Days’ echoing hush

I stare out dreaming mountains

And wild freedom of the winds

A Walk Before Lockdown

Photinia x fraseri ‘Red Robin’ – my favourite hedge in spring for its showy, bi-coloured foliage. Photo taken on a leisurely walk around the neighbourhood on March 18th, two days before the spring or vernal equinox in the UK. Five days later, the UK would commence a national quarantine against the coronavirus pandemic. It’s been three weeks now, and spring has sprung outside with less spectators.
