We took our Spring walk to the "secret garden" today. Daffodils, Jonquils, and Wood Hyacinths were on display along the path that runs between our neighbor's fence and the marsh. The neighbor had a compost heap along the fence from which various flowers escaped and established themselves on our side safe from the cows that roamed our neighbor's meadows. We had plenty of work cutting back the roses that grow along the fence and encroach on our path. It was, however, the first time that I had noticed the beautiful old willow growing alongside of our neighbor's pond. When we got to the bench that overlooks the river we saw that someone had made a fire, but fortunately they hadn't thought to carve their initials into the bench.
