I have just returned from my brisk walk around the village and I feel invigorated from the exercise. Not too many people around: three people jogging separately, a pair of cyclists, a lady riding a Clydesdale-cross work horse, two almost-empty buses, one or two essential delivery vans, and a few very sensible pedestrians keeping their distance.
On the negative side: an elderly man balanced on top of a tall, rickety wooden step-ladder, hosing down the plastic corrugated roof of his car-port. If he falls and injures himself, that will mean an ambulance and possibly hospital treatment when the National Health Service is working at full stretch already.
There are too many idiots thinking they can flout the Government's advice, including the far-too-many private cars on the main roads making non-essential journeys.
Ours is a fairly small garden but it is enclosed at the back so it is very private and is protected from late frosts by high wooden fences and bushes. We also have a small polythene greenhouse where Mary grows vegetables from seed and later in the Summer it is full of tall, bushy tomato plants which usually give us a good crop.
Well, I must go out and prune some more hydrangea branches.
Keep well, old friend.
Spring songs - hmm.
There is an instrumental called "Spring Is Near" by The Outlaws which came out on a 1961 single on HMV. (NOT the later country supergroup of that name, but the British guitar group produced by Joe Meek).
"Spring! Spring! Spring!" from the film, "7 Brides For 7 Brothers".
I've also cheated by Googling songs about Spring:
"Younger Than Springtime" (various artists have done this);
"Spring Fever" (Elvis Presley);
"Spring Rain" (Pat Boone);
"Suddenly It's Spring" (Frank Sinatra);
"Spring" (Serendipity Singers).
"Out Of Town" (by Max Bygraves remains, oddly enough, one of my favourite uplifting songs.)
