Foxglove Glade

A private woodland (shucks): 2nd June 2020

The highlight of last week’s walk was the utter stillness of Breydon Water. This week, same walk but in reverse, the fairies had been busy with their magic.

This was as close as I could get, separated by a water-filled ditch. And yet, those intrusive trees provided the frame…

    • There were so many. Not only in those woods, in the adjoining fen. They must have been growing there, undisturbed, for years and years to grown to such a wide patch, and in the fenny bit they were densely packed too.

    Stunning photo! Were there a lot of bees? I ask because I once sold them and bees came to enjoy them. A child was within an inch from behind the store window watching a bee collect its treasure. It was a beautiful moment I’ll never forget.

    How lush and peaceful! And yes, I can definitely imagine fairies playing there in such an idyllic scene.

        Thank you! A friend is making me cake — and even better, only giving me a small amount and then having her kids eat the rest

      • That’s really good. Myself, I shall celebrate mine alone with no special treats, although surrounded by the good thoughts of friends

        That was my original plan too, to stay home and have phone calls with loved ones. But my friend was so sweet about wanting to make the cake, it was hard to say no.

        Indeed! She has also been driving me to all of my eye doctor appointments. I tell her I feel bad for asking so much, but she keeps thanking me for the “good excuse” to get out of her house during these shutdown days (for a little break from her husband and two young children). 🙂

      • You’re lucky to have a good friend. I’ve now been referred for op on my right eye asap. How sappy that is depends on what more happens with the virus. I was told 2 yrs ago I had cataracts, now I’m told the right eye has rapidly deteriorated, that it’s not a wear&tear type thing, but more often the result of trauma. No idea what’s caused it. Optician thinks I’ll have to wait at least 6 months, probably a year, and that the right eye will be useless by then. Hoo-hum, hey.

        Oh no, that really is rapid deterioration, I’m so sorry to hear it! At least I know what trauma it was that led to my cataract (the extensive surgery to save my retina). We are going ahead with the surgery here. Maybe it’s different because I have a wonderful eye institute here at the university with its own surgical center, so I don’t have to go to the big hospital where they’re dealing with COVID & related complications. Or maybe it’s a matter of what different doctors consider “elective” surgery. I do hope you can get that taken care of sooner rather than later. Eye surgery is no fun, I know, but hopefully it’s worth it for the improved outcome.

      • It’s not too bad yet. Optician said to let him know if it becomes impossible, and he’ll send in a new report to jumped me up the triage process. Suppose it depends on the severity of others waiting. Good Old NHS. But I don’t helve private health insurance. So I must wait

        I have heard awful stories about long waits for treatments. Such is the trade-off. I am very fortunate to have excellent health insurance through the university, but most Americans have no such recourse.

      • I toyed with the idea during my later working life, but… that’s life
