There have been some beautifully sunny early mornings at the Ornamental Pond this week, but there has also been a fair bit of rain, which fits in well with it being the time of year when I get very muddy.
In fact I get muddy pretty much all the year round for one reason or another, but now is the season when I slightly adjust my main cause of muddiness. The snowdrops and crocuses are beginning to appear, the daffodils and tulips are not going to be far behind, and I have to kneel in the mud to take their photos.
This need to worship the thought of spring means that, if I am not immediately cycling off to work, after seeing the morning arrive at the Ornamental Pond I am inclined to wander towards the Old Cemetery. Here, I can meander along the relatively quiet side tracks wearing a daft smile on my face and exclaim out loud to my heart’s content about how happy I am to see the buds appearing.

On the way to my solitary conversations, I generally call in to see what is happening with everyone at The Cemetery Lake. My secret favourites here are the tufted ducks, with their windswept hairstyles. Although they do not always seem exactly delighted to see me.

After my tour of the Cemetery Lake and the Old Cemetery I delve into my pockets to see if there are any forgotten refreshments available, and then cycle off, muddy kneed, to wherever it was that I was meant to be before I was side tracked by hopefully sunny thoughts of spring.
