So cold today my hands went purple when I cycled gloveless, but though my hands were bloodless the world was not lifeless.
I went out running, third day on the bounce, 8.5km, hoping to end up at a garden centre to check up on the price of bee friendly plants for my work project but, hey, it's Easter Sunday, not open.
I rather thought it would be, so never mind.
There was a gentle rain falling, but it didn't bother me, it in fact made my day rather refreshing. It put a bit of colour on all the flowers as well, with many different species now on view in the cemetery, especially around the ditch where the wild garlic grows. Buttercups have now emerged.
I just kept going and enjoyed it all.
