Signs of spring...maybe


Today it was so nice out that I took some time out from sewing to go hill-walking with some friends. The fields are starting to turn green. There were lots of snowdrops still and some daffodils were starting to come up in areas protected from the wind. It gives you hope that spring isn't too far away. I particularly liked all the sheep we strolled past. Not too long before the hills are covered with lambs! The walk was about 5 miles and took us through the village of Dumbleton where this impressive manor is located. Afterwards we all had a pub lunch. Afterwards I came home took a shower and slept for 3 hours! I am so out of shape!


So now I am set to finish the last strip on my Bargello! I'm hoping to have the top done in the morning. Photos soon!!

Did you really take those pictures on the day of your walk? I can't remember the last time we had skies that clear and blue! Lucky you!

Yep yesterday really did feel like Spring, once the fog and frost has disappeared this morning it's forecast to be even milder today - yippee!!!

What lovely pictures! Sounds like a pretty terrific way to spend the day with friends.

I had no idea that your Spring was so far ahead of ours! Lucky you!

Thanks for the reminder that Spring is on it's way. It seems like it is far far away, but it is on it's way! Love the photos of the English countryside!

A friend in London called yesterday and mentioned the springlike weather, but with a rude awakening yesterday afternoon? Today is gorgeous here in northern Ger. I went round doing all sorts of onerous errands, just to stay outside and revel in the sunshine.

I love how your bargello turned out. Pretty colors choices and pretty cat as well :-)
