Another exceedingly dull day. Optimistically, we set out for our walk around the 'American Adventure', ignoring the darkening skies. Of course, by the time we were half way around our walk, it started to spit with rain. Ten minutes later, it started to come down a bit harder and after another ten minutes, we were putting our hoods up and I was tucking my camera into my coat to keep it dry.
One, most welcome sight however, was the appearance of the first catkins on the Hazel trees (Corylus avellana).
