All good things


One aeroplane flew high overhead just after lunch today. Very high, just a speck uncoiling twin cables of vapour across the blue.

They must have been doing the vacuuming. A few hours later the government announced that the skies would be reopening. Soon it will be impossible to look up from the garden without seeing a plane or the trail of a plane again.

It was good while it lasted.

    My good lady and I had the good fortune to visit Kew Royal gardens last weekend, while the skys were bereft of aircraft and associated noise. Quite delightful. Of course, being our first visit we took it for granted that was the norm, forgetting that it’s right on Heathrow’s doorstep.
