Down the rabbit hole, spring flowers and ham.


1. Burrows. I think Alice in Wonderland may have altered some pathway in my brain because I can't go past a hole in a hedgebank without investigating. I spotted a promising one among the roots of an oak tree near work. I didn't tumble in while inspecting it, so I'm guessing it was just a regular old rabbit hole.

2. The shoots of stitchwort poking out among dead leaves. (Picture by Michael Grant)

3. Italian ham -- the kind that is soft and sliced really thin and is salty and little bit sweet -- with bread and butter.
