Looks like most of us had a good day, weather wise today.
When I did the jobs I had to do I went for a walk down to the mill and followed the stream back up to the house.
There's something just nice about almost total silence, me and my thoughts. I'm liking that. You could hear a leaf crackle as you trod on it. Well not quite alone. My two cats, Fadger and Little Fadge never miss an opportunity to tag along and they were there exploring the undergrowth and enjoying the warmth for all they were worth.
Despite the warmth of the sunshine though, the wind was still keen. You could almost sense the arm wrestle between Winter and Spring right there.
I found this tiny blue wild flower growing amongst the debris and flotsam of brittle dead leaves. It's common enough and I should know the name of it, but can't think for the life of me what it is? Whatever - it's one of Nature's understated works of art. I've loved my life today.
