1. The smell of bluebells overpowering the smell of a muck-spread field.
2. A slender cat the colour of ginger nuts waiting by the post box. It looks like a little lion and for a moment I wonder if round the corner there might be a herd of appropriately sized zebras and wildebeest.
3. Wisteria. I am always pleased to see houses draped with its long purple flowers springing from nearly leafless vines.
