WHAT’S WRONG WITH WEDNESDAY’S?
Consistently, no-one ever checks out the website on a Wednesday. Is Wednesday such a sad day, locked between the weekends that folk can’t be asked?! Or that folk are too busy or too exhausted? Probably the latter.
Of course what does seem to change the mood, is the sunshine. Even though something has eaten the tops off every single one of our daffs, I’ve just wandered around the garden and it was lovely. We’ll pick the first crop of rhubarb this week. Hurrah! I stopped blanching it last year, and instead make rhubarb cake and freeze those instead. Cut out the middle process and save time. And my policy of ground cover, or you’re not too faffy, seems to be paying off. So apart from a tiny bit of weeding, and a bit of pruning, we can really enjoy it. Pots can be lovely but you do have to water them, so this year I’m cutting back on them too. But I always say that and then get seduced by some blowsy colourful annual.
We need a bit of sun, colour, space in our lives but sometimes it’s just a dandelion in the crack of the pavement. And if you’re having a Wednesday every day, then find your dandelion, take a breath and stare at the shiny, satiny petals, if only for a few moments.
