Paddy being good

This morning, Paddy and I set off into the valley, under the bridge where the stream runs and into the fields beyond. The weather is beautiful and, even though the fields are still brown and most of the trees are bare, there are hints of a forthcoming explosion of green, if you look carefully.














Paddy had a bit of trouble negotiating the kissing gates but he enjoyed the walk and, on the way home, when we ran into a walking acquaintance who has two impeccably behaved collies, he too, on this occasion, was impeccably behaved.








Of course, he may just have been too tired to bother!

  1. A lovely walk indeed. Tis a tad misty here - just wondering if the sun is going to get out - fancy a walk with Freida at some point. Gardening is on the cards - and also we have plan B! The removal of a fireplace - oh yes we know how to live! lol!

  6. Good old Paddy! He seems to be growing up. Your photos remind me that this year I shall not see that lovely British clarity in the early springtime. Here, although it is usually very warm you don't see sharp blue skies.

  7. I always love this time of year, YP. You can almost see the sap rising and the leaves unfurling on the trees.
