Leeks, Butterfly and Chopin

15 Mar

I’m loving that we are still harvesting leeks from the allotment.

The lovely Mr S spotted a butterfly on the windowsill and caught this photo for me.


Heartbreakingly beautiful…… professional pianist Irina Maniukina playing Chopin (Aeolian Harp’ Étude, Op. 25, # 1) before finally leaving her home south of Kyiv.

    It makes one a wee bit hopeful listening to and watching someone play Chopin at such a time of hopelessness.

    Those leeks are cracking – they’ve stood the winter really well. Happy growing 🙂

      Yes, we are delighted with this year’s leek success. They are a great favourite in this house! 🙂
