10.4.39

Southwold: Have been here since 1.4.39, but spent most of the last week in bed.
A week ago, on arrival, weather mostly coldish, very still & rather misty. Thick sea mist on 2.4.39. Blackthorn flowering in places. Primroses abundant. Wild daffodils also plentiful, but for the most part not completely open. Fruit trees budding fairly strongly. Saw one of I do not know what kind (purplish flower) in blossom in a sheltered place two days ago. Roses, herbaceous plants etc. sprouting strongly. Starlings still in flocks on 2.4.39. Larks singing hard. Some asparagus heads a few inches above ground.

    Welcome back to Blighty.

    But what is the asparagus a metaphor for here?

    First pos- ah, thanks zenomax.

    Good to see G.O. out of bed and about, even if it is in rather dreary England.

    Island of damp chills
    but green after the desert:
    Eric is home, sick

    Do starlings stop flocking after a certain date?

    Just when I thought I was going to lose my sanity, another entry! Whew.

    It must have been such a change to go from that arid, open place back to damp, be-treed England. And to be welcomed by flowers and familiar birdsong!

    Here in similar western Oregon, the daffodils and grape hyacinth are at a furious peak. Ornamental cherries have been blooming, but now the fruit cherries and the pears are starting as well. It’s a fabulous year for camellias for some reason. The ducks at the local pond have been mating, and on sunny days the bees are buzzing. I hope George gets a sunny day soon.

    spring in southwold, so unlike morocco. same mind and same words, same voice, change in context. so strange to see through another’s memories…

  7. This alleged “Southwold” as viewed from my stealth dirigible does not do justice to the view from Earth.

    In my mind, all future unexplained absences are explained unless, of course, explained otherwise–which is not to say that they would then become unexplained but, rather, they would become hyper-explained.

    How’s the surfing in that tourist mecca often referred to as “Southwold” ?
