There's a feeling in the air, a hint of something coming. It's not just me, others have noticed it too - there's more activity going on, more people around, more of a bustle about the place.
I spotted this on a walk ten days ago, just before the snow fell :
Today I took the dogs for a walk along the ridge near Montjustin. I have to confess to having bought a retractable leash for Cookie, not something I ever thought I would do! It's hard to see, but it stands out more clearly in the shadow :
The ridge was just glorious. The dogs had a great time, and it was nice and dry so I didn't have to worry about Cinny's wounds getting wet and dirty. There were a few lizards trying to warm up in the sunshine, which both dogs thought was great fun.
I saw a hint of leaf buds on an almond tree
My promise is to stop being a lazy so-n-so and get my butt back in the saddle. Cross my heart.
