My friend Andrea and I set off this morning on a lovely walk in the long awaited sunshine.
We walked footpaths edged with tall chalk cliffs, besides a clear stream edged with primroses.
Alongside the Thames where trees are still bare and new growth is sparse.
Through a brick tunnel that was a bit like this last winter, long, dark and cold.
Coming out to greet the yellow
(taken another time, at Chatsworth)
The sun has really taken it's time arriving this year, let's hope it stays a while. I was about to send out a search party.
