The darling buds of green
'And the secret garden blossomed and bloomed and every morning revealed new miracles'
~ The Secret Garden
May is here. And the darling buds have started to show their friendly faces. The soft rainfall this morning at the meadow left everything a rich, glowing green. Suddenly the meadow has come to life. And the ponies too as the spring grass rears its head. A field of daisies, buttercups and dandelions. The dock leaves and stingers always make an appearance as if to compliment each other. The river that runs alongside our meadow, has become a nice paddling pool for the ponies during these warmer days. I watched them this morning picking their way closely into its shallow depths to retrieve the lusher bits of grass that have grown upon the sloping banks. The contentment in their eyes as they munched happily side by side was truly 'Perfik'.
