In Pursuit of Spring
The photo of the Germander Speedwells and Yellow Archangel was taken in the beautiful woodland near Thomas's memorial.
I apologise for pinching the title of Edward Thomas's book - his last one (published in 1913) before his beautiful prose flowered into stunning and evocative poetry.. Over the Easter weekend, Matthew Oates is on Radio 4 each afternoon, speaking of Edward Thomas's journey from London to Somerset (the Quantocks), a journey of some 130 miles by bicycle. I was a little disappointed that this programme was only 10 minutes long (and not the half hour I was expecting!) but I am just listening to it again
