That said. I was quite tearful this morning when I saw the latest message from REMs Michael Stipe on youtube. Including this song he has recorded from lockdown.

March highlight is always the joint Alpine Garden Society/Scottish Rock Garden Club show in nearby Kendal. It just managed to take place, albeit with reduced visitors, prior to lockdown happening. It will be the last show of the season, sadly.
Last day of the month I was out annoying the ants for reasons which will eventually be made clear…
Spring is, well, springing. So here are some photos from the garden!
