On Sunday the sun was brightly shining so we set off for a walk at Dorney Lake.
It was a case of "Blue skies smilin' at me, nothin' but blue skies do I see".
The family of swans that I saw first back in August last year were there, and the cygnets are nearly fully grown.
I could only see six of the seven that I saw originally, so I hope the other one was away foraging on its own somewhere.
But what I really came to see was the wonderful collection of dogwoods, different varieties planted en masse showing a roit of winter colour in the bright sunshine. They are a treat to see at this time of year and I always look forward to seeing them.
Guaranteed to lift the winter blues away!
