I wondered if it was lucky.
And it must have been.
Because five minutes later I saw two green parrots sitting in a pink blossom tree.
So, all in all, it was a very colourful afternoon.
And there were also daffodils, carpets of crocuses, drifts of tiny blue irises and snowdrops, camellias - just opened and perfect; in a week or so they'll be looking like stained, tattered ballgowns. There were even pink rhododendrons in the rhododendron dell.
Rhododendrons and snowdrops?
Is it global warming?
