It is June now. Halfway through the year.
I once read that one’s lifetime is a spiral, with the circles getting tighter and tighter as you get older. I liked the idea: remember how long the years felt as a child and how they feel like they are speeding by now. Every year seems to go faster and faster. I don’t know if this is my own fault – we do often seem to be rather busy – or if it is the case that time in my life is spiralling away.
Summer is starting here. Amusingly, the last two weeks of May were uncharacteristically hot, but now temperatures have dropped back to low teens and I can’t decide whether to discard my buff when cycling or not.
I have scattered wildflower seeds in my front yard with an optimistic vision of creating a mini wildflower meadow. I suspect only weeds will prosper. I do love England’s summer’s wildflowers. We will be walking and cycling in the next few months and I will photograph and post them accordingly.
In the meantime, let’s indulge in some nostalgia for springtime. Here are some photos of spring flowers that I have taken in the last few months.
