I walked to work 4 out of the 5 days ~ still between 19 and 20 minutes each way. I have chosen different routes to walk, but on Friday as I was cutting through a trail, I passed a 'gentleman' in his bathrobe walking his two dogs. He probably is used to nipping out to do this without running into anyone...although I had my camera, I didn't think it would be quite polite to snap his photo! It was a funny and unexpected sight though! :)
The weather was a bit brighter during the week, but still not very warm. I hardly took any photos until this weekend when I spotted a sure sign of spring in my garden. (I had to quickly change my template because the purple text with the violets melded into the blue background.)
On Saturday, my son and I worked in the house and garage, managing to do some more spring cleaning. On Saturday night, there was really a gale blowing, and we were wondering if the power was going to go out. However it did its job by blowing the clouds away, and today was glorious. I spent most of the morning outside tidying up and spreading some sea soil around. Many birds were twittering in the trees, but I raked up lots of nest-making debris that seems to have been passed by.
In the afternoon, I decided to go for a drive as I haven't been far from home all week. Here are some photos of my afternoon in a slide show format. The ones of the crows aren't very close for the most part, but they were diving about making a heck of a racket ~ protecting nests no doubt.
How was your weekend?
