Continuing a look at the seasons in the walled garden in Ithilien...

New Life in the Walled Garden

Faramir paced around the walled garden; sheltered from the chill wind he could cover miles and yet remain near the house.

Snow patches still dappled the winter-faded grass and earth, but tiny green spikes showed signs of new life.

In the past, he thought, this would have been well into the first month; each day a little longer, the sun a little higher. But the King’s return untied the year’s beginning from time and season…

A sound, shrill, unfamiliar, interrupted Faramir’s reverie and he began to run, heart pounding, towards the house.

‘The babe is here! Our own new beginning!’
