I’m afraid I missed my chance to bring you photographs of my friends Mrs Bees meadow, with its foam of white pig nut flowers. I popped by the other day and found they had gone to seed
And that the colour wheel had swung to a lilac haze. I think Mrs K brought us the definitive link about pig nuts, its all here. I quizzed my mum about them and she tells me they used to dig up the nuts with an old knife and eat them as sweets, during the war, when sugar was rationed.
Mrs Bee wasn’t home, but I sat in her meadow for a wee while, with my tea mug, it was very cathartic and good to be away from the hammering and banging of the building work, just for a little while.
We’ve been to see if we could see the leverets today, but, sensibly, they’ve moved on to somewhere more hidden and away from preying eyes.
