Happy Easter Monday Everyone!
What a blessing a garden is at any time, but most particularly at this staying-at-home time. I give huge thanks every day.
And look who I discovered in mine yesterday, a very welcome resident
I put the photo onto our family WhatsApp group for the children to guess what it is and to give him or her a name. At his second guess, Big Bro got it right and decided it was a male called Walley.
Having found this description on the internet:

This year is different.
How are you doing during this time of lockdown?
So far, I’m loving it. It feels like a gift to me. Time for quiet crafting and gardening with very few interruptions.
I feel extremely fortunate that I have a garden and neighbours who wander past and stop for a chat every now and then. They are all at home, so a close feeling of community is building like never before. It feels like it must have felt about 100 years ago. Everyone working in their gardens or on DIY projects – there seems to be always a power tool whirring away somewhere in the village.
My daughter lives just across the field from me, so she can come over with the children and we can have a catch up across the lawn.
It would feel very different if any of my children were in danger, out there on the front line. Or if any of my family or close friends contracted the virus. But for now the best thing I can do is stay at home alone and I am more than happy with that.
I do hope you found a satisfying way to celebrate Easter and wish you and your families and friends all the very best in the weeks and months to come.
