The daffodils around the row of lime trees in our street started to bloom last weekend when it was sunny. More are in flower now, despite the greyness and cold.
Some fine early morning walks and cycle rides this week, nevertheless. Larks in young cornfields. First violets in the garden.
Busy-busy-Oxford-term-time, and no less so for the pandemic. More so? Not really. Oxford finds different ways to be busy, that's all!
Sad not to be meeting students face-to-face for assignment tutorials, though Teams, Zoom and so on work well.
And thoughts are turning to picking up where we left off pre-lockdown, nearly a year ago, in a world that won't recognise itself.
