These rather strange-looking brushes are actually the bursting buds of a lovely golden elder we have. We cut it down every year, and each spring these little red brushes sprout, and rapidly turn into the most glorious yellow leaves.
And speaking of yellow leaves, this willow trees coming into leaf looks more yellow than green in the afternoon sun!
Having had my eyes photographed, at a far-distant hospital and after a very long wait, I have now been telephoned by the Hospital with an appointment to see the Consultant next week. Of course, my mind is now thinking of all sorts of dire situations: why do they want to see me so soon? Am I going blind? Will I have to have an operation? HELP!
Better go and do something really useful, like cook the dinner!
