Outdoor Daily III

A new dawn, a new Covid-19 lockdown across the country.

On the Today programme (BBC Radio 4) this morning, the question arose how we stay positive in this mess, what lights us up in lockdown.

For one of the listeners, a lady in her 90s called Julia, it is the daily 5:30 pm ritual of poring a G&T and sipping it in the light of a candle while counting her blessings.

For me, it will be, once again, immersing myself in nature and noting abundance and beauty and counting my blessings.

I can’t convey the wonderful scent of this winter flowering shrub Daphne odora…it is divine and that’s why I planted it by my front door.

Some of these moments I’ll share here in Outdoor Daily III.
