Midwinter Spring is its own Season

I know, Jack in the Green is a May Day figure. Indeed, I saw him last May, walking down the Gloucester Road...


... but in this strangely spring-like winter, rife with unseasonal daffodils and confused squirrels, Jack's a natural figure to mark the Solstice. Besides, "Jack in the Green" is a song as much about winter as spring.

(Oh, and Happy Birthday, Will.)
