Across the road from us is Malvern Wells Common, part of the holdings of Malvern Hills Conservators. It is large and steep, some trees in the upper part, a lot of bracken everywhere, no trees in the lower part and several streams running through it - this is Malvern, after all. Today I walked over it and found only one spot of colour, a celandine flower surrounded by dead bracken and some new rosettes of nettle. Grass and bracken have been flattened by the winter. There are no flowers on the gorse.
Of the trees, only the willows are looking alive. It will be two or three weeks before much grows here. But it was sunny and warm and there were children in the pond engrossed in what a net had caught for them.
I put on Michael's jeweller's glasses and examine 'Reflections', then washed it. It is dry already. I put another heddle in and corrected the warp. Then spent some time doing the drafts. Tomorrow I will try them out.
