April is the Cruellest Month

Well, if you are thinking of a title about something which is April, and its about an old ash tree, and thoughts of ash die-back, then April is the Cruellest Month is not a bad title. I have always been a bit over-awed by T.S.Elliot..
Last week, we went to the opening of Wilhelm Sasnal at Lismore Castle Arts near Cork, where I met the great man, and was thrilled to see some of his new work.  Influential in the different brush stokes he uses, and his very limited use of colour, almost as if he were colour-blind.
