"The sun rises in spite of everything"

Dear friends, I am short of energy at the moment and need to conserve what I have, so I'm taking this week off from the blog. 

I hope you're enjoying the spring, and those of you in the southern hemisphere, the autumn.

Here's a photo I took last week on a bike ride - fresh green leaves on a hawthorn, up on Longstone Edge:

April is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.

T S Eliot

happy rest and recuperate! T S Eliot is my favourite poet apart from A E Houseman.....

Thank you, Marmee. I spent this morning in springtime sunshine, in the garden.

I don't know Houseman's poetry.
