February 2021

The first flowers bloom…

Bright young daffodils
great the Spring with a fanfare
of golden trumpets.



After the clamour of the storm…

This post-storm morning,
birds sing with renewed passion.
Making up lost time.



Suddenly, in the midst of Spring’s arrival, an extremely cold snap…

Spring takes a step back,
gives Winter another shot.
The Béara blanches.



Spring attempting to spring, buds, shoots and others…

There is a fierce itch:
Spring making its presence felt
with the first midge bite!
