The dire weather forecast didn’t bother me this morning as I knew that the desk was the main venue for todays activities……but when the sun miraculously appeared it was a case of grasping the opportunity for a quick break and some exercise and fresh air…
Darley Abbey Park, Derby
So with no chance to head off anywhere exotic it was one of our local City Parks that was the chosen ‘instant’ venue. The low sunshine adds contrast and the mild winter means that the colours are still rich and glow in the sun. Bulbs are breaking through, buds are swelling on the trees, there is a little Blossom by the river and the Willow is now a rich yellow…a sure sign that it will soon be in spring leaf.
So 60 minutes of brisk walking with the dogs then it was back to the office….30 minutes later it was dark and raining once more…..just shows that you have to take your chances when you can….
We wait to see what tomorrow will bring…..
