Earth Day in South England

The blossoms have been hiding behind the unseasonably cool weather.  But a couple of days of warm sunshine, and they have pushed away the fog and winter’s hold, emerging to display rebirth of life.

A thunderstorm last night kept us up watching the skies.  This morning some initial fog as we headed out to Barton on Sea, just down from Milton on Sea.  You can guess — nearby is the sea.

Time to haul out the book of Haiku for one of my favourite writings, from the 18th and early 19th century Japanese monk,  Issa.

congratulations
issa… you have survived to feed
this year’s mosquitoes
