AND INTO APRIL – the month of the greening of the trees, and sudden late frosts. Country Lore spoke of ‘blackthorn winter’ at this time of the year when a warm spell is cut short by a cold snap. We are all hoping that Easter will be sunny.
SHORT PASTORAL LETTER FROM THE BISHOP — mentioning that the consultation has now closed and that ‘the various proposals put forward must now begin to be gradually implemented.’
ANYONE FOR NETTLES – Rose Prince has been extolling the virtues of the said plant. ‘Nettles are highly nutritious, packed with iron and have anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. We should be eating them- they are food free. Once heated,the leaves (you do not eat the stalks) lose their sting. They taste like a grassy spinach – very delicious in soup or stir fried and added to pasta.’
HALO POLISHING – The perfect time for giving the halo a make-over!
