My daughter had asked me if I could drive her to school yesterday, as a treat for her birthday. Being on annual leave, it gave me the opportunity to treat myself as well.
Over the past six weeks, I had been working so much, there had been no time for early morning walks but with the weather being so glorious on this Thursday morning, I really enjoyed a walk round a local park after
having a coffee under the trees. This reminded me of the day I had walked to the same park for the first time, once lockdown had started to be eased, except now we could be heading in the opposite direction. Thus, it appears to be a case of make hay while the sun shines.
I’d already taken a walk through the same park on Wednesday with a friend but then our objective had been to seek out a pub in the neighbouring village. It had also been gloomy rather than brilliantly sunny, so here is the upshot of my amble round the more formal part of the park the next morning.
All in all, I was so uplifted by the relaxing start to the day, I then had a productive time at home. This included planting out a rosemary seedling. After managing to kill off the last one, I hope this will survive in the forest garden, where it should not be in ground which gets too damp.
