A short post today, as it's waaaay too nice to sit inside tapping away at a 'pooter (which seems to be on the blink anyway).
The park is full of people in shorts, having pic-a-nics.
Full of colour too.
Bright yellow forsythia.
Soft pink and white magnolia, blackthorn and cherry blossoms.
And the first nascent green leaf buds on trees and hedges all over the shop.
Plus today a wonderfully-colourful bunch of Hindus celebrating "Holi" by bunging a load of bright pink, orange and blue dye powders around and on each other (I asked them what it was they were celebrating and they were very happy to tell me all about it).
I'm teaching my eldest boy how to really control his bike at the park at present.
Uphill. Downhill. In the saddle. And out. Tight turns. At high speed. At low speed. Cross country. And on tarmac.
Thought I'd video him today and at the same time record (in the background) a lovely bird, calling loudly and repetitively.
My eldest boy in this video can (certainly!) name the bird calling in the background (I make it my business to point this sort of stuff out to him, so it doesn't get missed by him)...
But can YOU?
Have a go...
