The sun is shining - well, nearly shining. It was doing better earlier on and actually shone brightly enough to wake me before the alarm went off. Now the clouds have come across again, albeit only fairly light clouds. It is also a lot warmer this morning than it has been of late. It got so cold that a couple of days ago I pulled out a pair of gloves to wear when walking the dog. I do find that if I let my hands get too cold the arthritis starts playing up even more than usual. So as the sun is shining, I should be out there working in the garden which has been left to its own devices now for far too long. Instead, I am sitting here reading through the various blogs that constitute my daily reading list and wondering why on earth I bother to try and put something onto this blog every day.
Let's just get to the pic of the day. Still enjoying our stroll in the Waterhall valley, we leave behind the pond with its tadpoles and make our way past the north-facing bank where the primroses are still very much in bloom. The provide an attractive background for an attractive butterfly which I guessed was a peacock. Checking when I got home, I found I was right! So here is that peacock butterfly resting on primroses.
