Cheery Cherry

It was a swift walk this morning due to the bitterly cold wind which cut through us like a knife. So it was through Pewit Carr and round Straw's Bridge before returning home for a hot coffee and a tot of brandy.  Along the Nutbrook trail, the cherry trees were in full bloom, despite the wind trying to knock all the petals off.
The paths were covered with white petals, like confetti.
All rather beautiful - while it lasts!
Among the trees around Straw's Bridge, the Cowslips were still making a brave show in the cold wind.
By now, we were cold enough to be in need of that brandy, so it was off home past the Manor Floods - coated in a nasty, green scum of algae after the few warm days last week.
