The colours of nature

Here we are, our Saturday walk on the hill (just on our doorstep!)

We are just blown away by the rapidly changing colours of the fields around us. Practically every other week, different set of blooms come out! I remember the yellow weed flowers two weeks ago, and now it’s the turn of the purples!

Nature trip

A trip to town followed by a walk in the forest then another walk in the meadow before a quick puttering in the garden…. I am at a loss for words by the beauty of the world around me so just enjoy the photos!

A rabbit or a deer? He went scampering across the road as soon as he heard our van approaching!

The weather forecast this morning was of snow and I didn’t believe it. It’s April for goodness’ sake, they must be mistaken. But it did happen, and it’s still happening as I type. Three weather patterns came one after another since this morning: strong winds, rain and now snow. It’s only 5 in the afternoon so I wonder what will happen next. Oh well, I will continue to sit next to the fire and debate which one of my long-shelved thousand and ten projects needs urgent attention. I have enough projects that could last me three retirements, you see. But I’ve been procrastinating as usual. How can’t I when I am surrounded by beautiful works of nature needing to be photographed and scrapped! In the meantime, I need to finish mixing my bread and lemon pudding ingredients which have been sitting in the kitchen since this morning.

Truly, a woman’s work is never done!
