After breakfast and coffee, we went out for a walk this morning. It's my kind of day!! Grey, windy, chilly, misty, and then it started to rain. It was just misting a bit when we started out, but this eventually gave way to steadier rain, which was quite brisk and refreshing--I always feel like I can breathe better in a brisk wind and rain. I am not sure Bill enjoys a good soggy walk quite as much as I do!
There was plenty of colour around, too--signs of spring all over.
Looks like someone cut a tree a little further down the road--love the design made by the tree rings!
Things are slowly starting to leaf now--I thought the red leaves coming in on this little bush were striking.
As are the bright pink buds and flowers:
There's always something interesting on the stone walls:
As we were getting back into town we came across another lone lost shoe. A few weeks ago there was one on Church Lane and now this one on Convent Road. I told Bill that now I have two photos of lost shoes, I have a series started!
The rain has started splattering against the windows. Bill just got up to look and he said, "Yup. It's pouring. Sideways. Glad I took my stroll earlier."
