April Showers and Sunshine
April, one of the loveliest months of the year and there was plenty of sunshine today. I do have some very exciting news I will be on BBC One Countryfile on Easter Sunday 21st April at 19.00hrs talking about my work with wonderful Steve Brown. A huge thank you to the Countryfile team for making me so very welcome. For some reason the sacred Hare of old beliefs has been changed into an Easter Bunny and the holiday is never the same weekend. Eostre was the old festival and was supposed to celebrate new life and the season of Spring.
I thought I would include one of my drawings of a hare breathing out the seeds of spring and thereby creating new life.
'The infant april joins the spring
And views its watery skye
As youngling linnet trys its wing
And fears at first to flye...'
From the Shepherd's Calendar by John Clare'
So much new life, so much new hope...
