Is it spring?
When out walking the dogs to-day I saw a welcome sight, Catkins aka Lamb's Tails is this a good sign.
They're still quite fluffy, but there were lots of them. Shall I get excited, I was clearing the photos from my phone and came across the following,
Me n tango
The Isle of Wight is just off out to the right
Was it only three/four weeks ago?
Here's another couple just to finish off the batch
This was taken at the back end of the year
These are poisonous, but I find fungi interesting.
I usually feed the gulls in the car park when i take the dogs out, they fly over when they see me get out of the car with something in my hand
This is just as you come out of the car park and walk down the path to the beach, Dorchester is way in the background, then Bournemouth in the near Background, the beach below is the one in the snow pictures
Today we had a good long walk up by the burial ground, I blogged about that on spaces, gone now. sob.
We only saw one person so it was good for Ruby, it allowed her to have a good run off lead, It wasn't too bad a day, dry and windy, it's helping dry the ground out, and does it need it, it's so muddy, |I spend all my free time washing dog's towels and blankets. oh well it won't last for ever, the catkins will lengthen and then the Pussy Willow will follow with primroses and daffodils, and so another season will start.
I then went into a local shopping complex, just for a change of shops, It's Karen's [younger daughter] birthday 8th Feb, so I got a card for her, she's taken a shine to the twenties era and art deco, the card is in a nice art deco style also with some matching notelets, well that's a start for her b'day anyway.
I also bought [for me] a new little teapot as I like leaf tea, and a cute glass frog. , apart from these things, just some boring food shopping., but it made a nice change of scene.
