Every Saturday I get up early to start the house work before the rest of the family get under my feet (I am sure they think the elves and fairies do this on a Friday night!), and then the rest of the day is mine. With Mr and Miss Teen doing their own thing nowadays and Hubs having his own jobs to do to get the house ship shape, me and Tia can pop down to the Fen for a quiet and refreshing walk. With the week being fairly dry I knew that the tracks would be easier to walk on for me and Tia wouldn't be as muddy, so off we went with Tia in her favourite position in the car with her jowls flapping as she popped her head out of the window. Once her seatbelt is released, she chooses where she wants to go, and luckily this time she wanted to head off on her favourite track. It was dry in places so she went on ahead.
I was glad she chose this track today as I could see in the distance a yellow line. There are lots of these around the villages at the moment and it is not the usual rape seed that tickles and angers the nose. No, the yellow line was a field of gorgeous sunshiney daffodils.
We happily walked along the deep dyke getting closer and closer to the sunshine field with hints of what was to come at the side of the slippery banks.
Our only company apart from each other were some horses in their coats, this one was very inquisitive...
... above us the Crowland Gliders were taking advantage of the good weather ...
... and the farm machinery all primed and ready for the season ahead.
Before long we were at the field. The wind making the little petals of sunshine dance in sequence and enjoying the snippets of the spring sun.
Line after line of these precious flowers all saying goodbye to the winter months and looking forward to the year ahead.
I'm so glad that Tia decided to take this walk today, her face says it all!
Back home and with a cup of tea for me, a Bonio and fresh water for Tia, it was time to refresh the bottles of springtime with the latest blooms. A happy and content Saturday with an evening to relax and plan the weeks ahead and maybe a spot of crochet!
I hope you have a moment for you to enjoy this weekend.
