We can’t go far because of the rules for social distancing (which is a misnomer, really, physical distancing would be a better name for it) but we are allowed out of the house to go for a walk or to go shopping. We can go for a walk in the company of persons from the same household. So we combined grocery shopping and driving a small distance to go for a walk in the local woods. The trees are still bare and the ground is covered with brown leaves from last autumn but looking a bit closer one can find the first fresh green leaves and also flowers, in this case heath violets, pilewort, and wood anemone. I’m not quite sure how the grape hyacinth got into that part of the woods but there it was.
