"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Mae'n heulog heddiw!

We had a long walk this morning, Paddy and I, as it was such a lovely, sunny day and it would have been a shame not to make the most of it. That's not to say that hips and knees weren't beginning to protest a bit by the time we got home, which made me think that maybe I'll have trouble there in future years, but by then, Elder Daughter will be a well-established consultant in 'Care of the Elderly' as they call it these days, so that's all-right!
I spotted a couple of orange tip butterflies, which I don't recall ever having seen before, although they seem to be quite common. I was just about to attempt a photo when White Van Man came steaming up the lane and the moment was lost.
Ah well, David Bailey was never in any danger from me...


  1. It has been beautifully sunny today... sheer bliss xx

  2. So welcome after a worse than usual winter, Sage.

  3. Do you mean David Bailey was never in danger photographically or did you have romantic designs upon the fellow?

  4. You (and he) will be relieved to know that I was speaking of photographic ability, YP. ;)

  5. I saw a couple of orange-tips over the weekend, and note that other bloggers have as well! Like you I don't recollect seeing any before. Flighty xx

  6. I thought maybe it was me having been unobservant in the past, Flighty. They are lovely!
