April is proving to be a vintage month for public planting here in Chippenham. After Monday's guerrilla'd Jewel Garden, here's the sheet of cowslips which currently greets us when we enter our estate. These get better and better every year.
Sometimes it's the simple things which make the most difference.
|The tummy level view - can you spot the dandelion?|
In their gold coats spots you see;
Those be rubies, fairy favours;
In those freckles live their savours;
I must go seek some dewdrops here,
And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear.
From: 'A Fairy Song', in A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare
