Sunday 10 April 2011: WHAT'S SHE LOOKING AT, MUM?
I am very lucky to live in an area, of North Yorkshire, that enables me to be surrounded by green fields within seconds of leaving my house.
Today I went for a walk in glorious sunshine and was pleased to see that the small patch of Coltsfoot seems to have survived for another year (two flowers are in bloom so far) and that Dandelions and Daisies are also in evidece. What did surprise me, though, was the fact that the Butterbur is also in flower as I'm sure it wasn't this early last year (perhaps, like us, the flowers have felt it has been too long a winter and wanted to soak up the sun).
Upon returning from my walk I encountered a couple who remembered my father and I spent an hour and a quarter reminiscing, with them, about days gone by.
The above picture was taken through the gate to a field . I make no excuses for the subject matter which, as time goes by, will probably be a recurring theme. I can't help it as I just feel that lambs epitomise the joy of spring.
