New Growth

I spotted these lovely snowdrops whilst checking out a route that I intend to add as an event in one of my local walking groups. A few weeks before Christmas I had a failed attempt at adding the event. Facebook showed others a different time (one hour later) than the one I had scheduled for the start, whilst showing me the time I intended. Re-walking the route today made me think that the failed attempt was a blessing in disguise, I had chosen to walk the circular in the opposite direction from the way I normally walk it. Today, I realised that the walk is not as good in the direction I had originally planned.

New Development

Along the way I noticed that a small housing development I had watched progressing during my lockdown walks was finally complete. In front of two most prominent bungalows there was a large poster showcasing ‘The Wrekin Rowers‘, a local team who are taking part in the ‘Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2021‘, raising money for RNIB and Severn Hospice. The four-man team have recently, suffered a setback when the spike of a marlin (a giant fish) pierced their boat causing it to take in water. The team have managed to patch the hole with a sandwich box, however the water taken on board has made the boat heavier and slowed their progress to the finish line.

New Challenge

Much later in the day, whilst I was cooking dinner the doorbell rang… Who could it be?

Mr C and I were treated to a lovely unexpected visit from a friend we hadn’t seen for far to long. Dinner was slightly delayed ;-)

  1. It’s definitely getting warmer these days.
    My garden hyacinths started to bloom last week!
    The daffodils are about 6 inch tall now.
