After a super active Saturday, Sunday was a very lazy day indeed and only today did I get out for a proper walk, a two hour stroll around the park and the cemetery again.
During the day off, a lot seems to have happened nature-wise, perhaps triggered by the milder and brighter weather today. All the trees in the park orchard are now in blossom, and a chiff chaff could be heard singing from an invisible vantage point somewhere within.
A butterfly fluttered by too, my first of the year. I didn't get a close look at it, but the colour was suggestive of small tortoiseshell, or perhaps a comma. A few honeybees were at work in the blossom, but not as many as I would have thought, and none were willing to pose for a photograph.
Over in the cemetery, the crocuses continue to decline slowly, but there long lines of daffodils along the paths, and beautiful blue carpets of glory in the snows.
