Discovering today that we have blue-tits in the garden. We have had great-tits for a long while but the smaller variety have been absent.. Then to my great joy I saw a bullfinch - the first for thirty years!! I have been feeding the birds all winter and I think this is my reward.

 

I also saw a bright yellow butterfly - quite large. Then I heard a massively noisy flight of cranes.  I heard them long before I was able to see them. They were flying due north, of course.

 

I hope these are heralds of spring!

Being where I know I truly belong. Watching Ron the heron waiting for breakfast, feeding a pheasant who comes when you whistle, seeing Noggin the cormorant diving, walking for 8 miles without seeing another person and watching deer jumping in the twilight...
Alas, I must find my way back to the Lamp post tomorrow.
Sooooo much to think about...

I found a sprig of purple heather lying around in Warwick's Market Square and attached it to my coat.

I have been thinking about where I will retire to and I think it will be to the city: I've lived in the country for nigh on 33 years. But when I retire (now less than 2 years away) I don't want to be driving 50 miles to get to concerts, or theatre, or rehearsals...
