Early Morning over Allestree Lake.
I think and I hope that it is going to remain warm for all if not most of this Spring Bank Holiday Weekend….we all need some soothing weather. Certainly it is a promising start. Blue sky, fare weather clouds and plenty of sunshine that despite an early start is already warming the spirits and if I am not mistaken the body too!
So a stroll round the Lake, through the woods and across the meadows was full of satisfaction, even the wild flowers were standing up straight to welcome us….
Last but not least I must mention the Ash Trees….
at long last they have burst into leaf, the last of our trees by a long way to oblige.
Mind you that could well be a good sign if the old country fable is true
Ash before the Oak and we are in for a Soak
Oak before the Ash and we are in for a Splash
We might well be in for a good summer…..yippee
