I've finally been able to get out and walk around the garden. It is still very wet and there are very few signs of Spring at the moment. Some of the shrubs seem to be suffereing from excess water, not surprising after all the rain which followed the melting snow.
Every morning this week we've heard the sound of geese flying over the house and this morning on our way back from an early walk we both heard and saw them as they flew over the rooftops. Just three but you would have thought there were more from the sound they made. On our walk we had spotted a woodpecker hammering away on one of the trees by the fishing pool, it stayed there for ages. I didn't have a camera with me!
Below books I've been reading and also those read and to be read
Over the last week or two I've read 'The Postscript Murders' by Elly Griffiths, 'A Song for the Dark Times' by Ian Rankin and 'Secrets on the Fens' by Joy Ellis all on my Kindle and all highly enjoyable. I've got 'A Chelsea Concerto' by Frances Faviell to look forward to.
Borrowed from the Library on e-books via the IPad (the library doesn't loan to Kindles) I've been reading 'Ferguson's Gang' by Polly Bagnall and Sally Beck in between and around those above. I've yet to read 'Thursday Murder Club' by Richard Osman but I do know the story as I've been listening to it serialised and read by Haydn Gwynne on BBC Sounds. I think it is still there if you are interested in it.
Even though February is a short month this year it has seemed unusually long. I don't want to wish time away but a few slightly warmer, sunnier days would help banish the inertia that seems to have overtaken both of us in the last couple of weeks. Here's hoping for slightly brighter days, they surely can't be that far away.
