Yesterday morning dawned sun smiley bright with the air alive with birdsong.
Taking the trio around the garden for their first boundary sniff and check of the day, I spotted the first hyacinths blooming shyly under the shade of the parasol tree whilst a small stone frog kept look out. The warmth of the day brought shy, night cold buds into full bloom by the end of it.
But during the afternoon I took my mutt for a small walk along a track ....now the other day I pointed out a nissen hut in a photo, so took the opportunity to get a close up, it's dilapidated, but still standing
and ... being used to store old farm stuff in. Some of which must have come in the other end before the brambles almost totally obscured the roadside entrance like this old wooden sided cart, made in the days before the modern metal ones became the norm around these parts.
It was great to be out and about with the sun shining so warmly but the old legs and hips couldn't take much, so a short walk down to the bridge and a look at old Ely Cathedral in the far distance, then much to Ffin's disapointment we turned back for a slow amble. Him hedgerow sniffing and me just enjoying the spring warmth. Sadly there are already drought warnings for this area.
So, these lush green fields may be suffering if the weather continues to be dry.
