Sadly not a Rose from our garden. Just one from a rather nice bouquet which now graces our dining table. It is about the only bright part of what has been another rather damp day. Not much rain just a lingering damp.
So hardly surprising that we met few folk on our daily walk.
At least it did keep away those groups of folk who seem to think that the current restrictions didn’t apply to them. It seemed to be the thing to bring along bags of can and bottles of beer and wine, take away food and other items, all abandoned as rubbish.
Not everyone of course, but a significant number who made life uncomfortable for the rest.
So today the dog walkers had the Park just about to themselves. Dogs of course having no concern for the weather, just doing their duty and ensuring their owners were getting some daily exercise. These dogs do have our best interest at heart…
With plenty of free space, it also allowed these mums to organise an impromptu ‘Sports Day’ for the kids. After all this is the time in the normal school year for the annual sports day. I just wish I had the energy of these youngsters…… if their mums were trying to tire the kids out…they failed
I was rather surprised that the River was not running higher or faster. We have had over a week of rains. Torrential rains at times. But whilst the river is higher than it has been of late, it was nowhere near being over full. Still the flow over the fish wear was intense and certainly noisy..
It may well have been rather wet… but it hasn’t stopped the Bees from being busy..
It is a short sprint to Mid Summer now, so I do hope we get back to some proper summer weather, it will be nice to feel that sun again.
But what ever the weekend weather brings …
Please Remember ….
Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
