When will this so-called Spring get a bit warmer? Perhaps it is something to do with my somewhat depressed state at the moment, but I do find the weather very cold and seem to have the central heating on most of the time these days (and my electric blanket at night.)
Today Tess and I went down to the feedmerchants to buy cat biscuits for the farm cats and wheat and layers pellets for the hens. On the way back we stopped at Marfield Wetlands and had a walk. There was a sharp wind blowing but it didn't seem to be deterring the ducks and other water birds - they were paired up and in many cases nesting. I did take my camera but forgot to put it in my pocket when I left the car in the car park. But I promise I will get back into photography before long.
My son and his wife return from their holiday in Wales today - I must say they seem to have been away a very long time. (twelve days) and I shall be pleased to see them home.
In the feedmerchants there was a man with a cage holding four brown labrador pups - they were exquisite. Isn't every young thing beautiful? Why do they have to grow up (that includes us humans too).
