Osborne

It was another bright, sunny and chilly morning today. Malcolm and I set off for Osborne's Pond in scarves and woolly hats, which soon became too warm. Looking across the water from beneath the old Oak, we were accompanied by the sound of Canada Geese honking in the stillness.
Everything was bright and blue and very spring-like. The birds were twittering in the branches, which were showing lots of swelling buds.
 Clinging to the trunk of the Oak, a rather colourful Ivy made a lovely covering to the gnarled bark.
Time for an 'arty' shot looking straight up the trunk, into the branches and twigs above. Another gorgeous day for a walk in the country - what a change from all the drab, dull and damp weather we've had this winter.
