Zooming in on the two bare trees on the horizon reminds you that we're still in Winter and Spring is not upon us yet - however much we try to kid ourselves.

A nice day today, but not as good as the forecasters promised. Still, at least we managed to get out for a walk and took in both Shipley Hill and Osborne's Pond. We went to look for the daffodils on the hill, but there were not very many to be seen yet and the snowdrops have all but finished, leaving a sort of 'limbo' between floral flushes. Two nice panoramas this morning, taken from the road which takes you down from Shipley Hill towards the small reservoir known as Osborne's Pond.
