Today my walking friend and I enjoyed the marvellous spring sunshine with a stroll by the canal and into the park. The last few days have seen temperatures rising at last, and all the pent-up springiness inside the plants is popping out. Within a few weeks we can look forward to the grey disappearing and being taken over by the bright green of newly formed leaves. I can't wait!
It was fantastic to feel the breeze on our faces, not cold and uncomfortable as it has been for so many months, but warm and full of the scents of spring.
The geese and ducks look as if they're glad to see the back of winter too.
