January Small Stone# Twenty Two

Do you know what? Despite the small stones, I’m really fed up with January. Fed up with walking to and fro to work in snow, sleet and sideways rain, only catching twenty minutes of daylight at lunchtime and getting cold all over again.
So, today my stone is looking forward to spring.
In February there will be Daphne, with its fragrance so strong that it reaches me way before I see it.


In March, I’d like to walk on Dartmoor on a clear day and listen to the hum of bees, awake and busy on the bright golden gorse.


March, what could be lovelier than a Dog’s Tooth Violet,┬áthe ballerina of the spring garden? I can hardly wait.

These have cheered me up, I hope you like them too!
