No sun today, and as I’m still not feeling fully back to health, I have felt a bit grey again. But it was relatively mild, so we made a quick trip to the allotment (no more pink rhubarb yet). Afterwards we took a gentle stroll along the river Stour. The river is still running high, and the banks look stripped after the high water levels and flooding over the last months. Thankfully the footpaths are drying out, and there are hints of the trees beginning to bud. A little egret was flying up and down, and we spent pleasant moments watching it clean its white feathers on the bank close to us.
There is gentle beauty in the shades and tones of grey and white, and spring is stirring even if it’s still hidden under cloudy skies.
Not my picture of the egret, click on the photo for the link, and more info.
