Spring, at last, seems to have sprung. Our snowdrops having been in flower for what seems like forever have packed it in. Daffodils, at long last, are out. There is, in the Strix garden, an invasion of wild garlic. But the trees are still very backwards in coming forward. A horticultural friend reckons that they are nearly a month behind in their normal cycle.

The weather has now become more normal with April showers but even yesterday afternoon we were hit by a hailstorm. Despite that, when I drove past the local garden-centre the car park was full. So the owners must be grateful that finally people are buying plants and shrubs. No doubt the public have been encouraged by television programmes extolling the virtues of home-grown produce with instructions of how to preserve, and store fruit and vegetables. There is nothing better in mid-winter than raiding and defrosting something from the deep-freeze or opening a bottle or Kilner jar and smelling and tasting a memory of those lost days of summer past.

“O, for a draught of vintage! that hath been
Cool’d for a long age in the deep-delvèd earth,
Tasting of Flora and the country-green,
Dance, and Provencal song, and sunburnt mirth!”

from ‘Ode to a Nightingale’, John Keats

Good luck to you all.

According to normal practice, for the everyday running of MM, I shall follow this rule on word length, in that each of my pre-selected link words contains at least four letters and at most eight letters. Stray outside this range and you will be wasting one of your attempts!

Each of the selected link words may go in front of, or behind my challenge word to make a new longer word or to make a well-known phrase or saying. The combination will never be a person's name.

The competition will officially close on Sunday Evening at 7.00pm, when gen2 will declare my pre-selected words and then apply the same rules for awarding points that have been applied during all MM Link Games in the past. My set of four words to have their links predicted should appear below at 9.00am.
