I was so lazy yesterday I felt that only a really long, punishing run would make up for the inactivity of yesterday. So I decided I would go cross country, out to Farndon via Hawton, to look at the usually very impressive snowdrop displays they have there.
Punish was the word, as it was pretty muddy out there and I nearly went over several times, the worst one on a slight slope by entrance to Willow Holt, when I did a metre long double footed skid in full view of a couple of dog walkers, fully expecting to break my leg or impale myself on a gate post.
Luckily I didn't. Instead I styled it out, looking across to the chuckling pair and their pooch, and knocking on my chest in the age old signal of fear.
As it turned out, I was early for the snowdrops at the back entrance to the village, they are up, but not out! However, there were other nice displays, and over the weekend as a whole there's been plenty to look at.
In a few weeks, Kelham Hall will be the go to place for snowdrops. They are always amazing there.
