A day where pictures speak louder than words, where the sun shone and a butterfly flew over my garden.
Many more flowers are out - blooming crocuses, lesser celandine in a place where photographing it would have meant falling in a lake, and balkan anemones in the cemetery.
Crows gathered for a social chat in the tree tops, and a fat squirrel ran away from me in surprise, and probably, horror.
The lake was beautifully lit by a low sun, silhouetting waterfowl as they went quietly about their aquatic business.
Me, I walked around and through it all, as Paul Gambaccini asked questions about Bruckner on Radio 4.
