Off and away just after 8am. Weather conditions a little gloomier and colder than it has been but still dry.
Looking back towards the village, foreground left we have my usual view of a ewe and her lambs (ie running away!)
Daffodils line this road, I like the paler ones here.
A distant stately(ish) home.
A road (not one I take today) through green fields.
The gorse is in full bloom. A long row of houses tops the fields above the reservoir. In the distance can be seen the faint outlines of mountains.
I spot quite a few blackthorn bushes out this way though it's still not terribly common round here. I'll try and remember where they are so I can return for sloes in the Autumn.
Sheep safely grazing.
The view across the Clyde to the mountains of Cowal, not terribly clear today.
Cow feeding trailer thingy on a little knoll with interesting fence post arrangement in front(!)
Knarled old gorse.
Back past the soldiers, then home.
I make some fatty cutties to have after lunch, the ride was quite a hilly one so I feel I deserve some carbs.
Now, to the garden...
...we've had glorious weather Sunday & Monday...
Our tulips are now in bloom. I like these simple shaped ones which reliably pop up every year rather than the more fancy ones which usually need replanting.
It's the first year we've had blossom on our little ornamental cherry.
Today A and a friend made a pebble sculpture.
And just for the record (seeing as this is the only form of diary I keep)...
A and I went to the theatre earlier in the week. I'm glad she's still a big fan of Charlie & Lola as I like them too. We both enjoyed the puppet show very much then we took the underground to the West End (Glasgow not London!) for a huge lunch, browsed a couple of shops (with a slightly smelly almost untouched pizza doggy bag) then returned home on the bus. It was lovely to have a day out with my little girl, hopefully there will be many more to follow. In the meantime hubby (on a day's holiday to look after N) went swimming and for a bike ride so they had fun together too.
