Sunday 29 March

The clocks went forward an hour over night, I don't think it's necessary any more, it was useful when we needed the light to work in but just confusing for folk today.
Raining this morning, not as bad as yesterday.

Weir & Fishladder bet most of you know where we are walking to this morning

Have you ever had the feeling that you are being watched? well we had a watcher in the wood, lone sheep not another in sight, sometimes they get caught in the brambles but it was quite free - just watched us as we passed and on our way back we looked for it, yes it was still watching us a little further on. 

 Primrose - Primula vulgaris in flower Spring has arrived

Lungwort - Pulmonaria officinalis was a little bedraggled but in flower
