Cheshire Cat welcomes spring
Yesterday evening, I went outside to get some herbs for dinner. And I saw the Cheshire Cat sitting in the beech tree, grinning at me. He's a long way from home, isn't he? I thought he looked especially happy, as it was a lovely warm spring day, and the evening was filled with the songs of blackbirds. In fact there was one in that tree just above the cat! I wonder if he knew. But the bird didn't seem to notice.
Down on the ground earlier in the day, the snowdrops were happily blooming in the bright sun, keeping me company as I weeded the strawberry patch they inhabit.
