1. As always Paul V's visit is a flying one, but as always it feels right and good to hear his news and share my own.
2. I'm trying to settle Alec for his afternoon nap but he keeps calling for Nick who is himself napping upstairs. I am very glad when he comes down and snuggles in beside us.
3. A lot of white (and pink) blossom and a few hard yellow nubbles: there will be strawberries soon.
