We don’t seem to spend much time here nowadays, and part of the roof that blew off whilst we were in New Zealand still hasn’t been repaired…
But who cares. It’s sunny, the birds are singing, the hedges have greened up and are blossoming; the cherry blossom is particularly abundant. Even some of the larger trees are exhibiting a green sheen of new growth.
The Bridgewater Canal’s towpath has even been dried by the keen east wind, so my galoshes have been left at home and the washing machine hasn’t been needed after every short bike ride.
The mallards have been busy as well - I passed some baby ducklings today.
