Tonight I’m off on my first Weasel outing since the Weasels Afloat in Brittany last year. On the ‘cruise’ John played us a new CD he’d found called Hadestown by Anais Mitchell. There’s a youtube video of it here. It’s described as a folk opera. Anyway, I’ll blog about it tomorrow.
The weather promised to be quite nice this morning when I walked Mirinda to the train but the clouds soon made their low grey presence felt. It even rained a bit at lunch time. It sprinkled on us while we walked in the park, the poodles and I.
One bright spot is our snowdrops. When I planted them last year they all looked cute and lovely but Mirinda had her doubts they’d reappear this year. She wrote about them here. I have to admit that I agreed with her but hoped all the same. However, they have proved us happily wrong and their little heads are popping up at the base of the hedge. Here’s a picture of a couple of them.
