Swept away by spring
This morning really did feel like the first day of spring. The sun was shining and it was warm. Hazel, the ball and I went for an early walk in the park - a slight failure as the Rugby Club were having one of their Sunday sessions with about 500 kids. Got so hot I wished I hadn't worn my coat.
Coming back I blipped these crocuses. They grow all over the place round here. I'm 95% sure they're the wild ones, crocus albiflorus, but have only just caught up with the fact there are wild crocuses. Before this year I always passed them muttering 'garden escapes'.
What I loved here was the decaying broom leaning against the decaying wall behind them. It looks a bit as though the flowers are hurrying away from it or else it is sweeping them off its patch.
Later V and Jax came round for a light lunch and an amble round the green where we saw a pair of mighty busy squirrels, and a blackbird guarding his nest. (Already? Perhaps).
Happy rest of Sunday xx
