Blowing the Cobwebs Away

Hello Everyone,

I went for a walk today. If we hadn't had one storm after another for weeks there would be nothing unusual in me taking a walk. But after a shower or two this morning the sun came out and I made a break for freedom. I exaggerate, of course, but it felt so good to get out, shake of what I call 'storm fatigue' and blow the cobwebs away.
It wasn't a long walk. Just a slow trot round the neighbourhood, up past a row of lovely little bungalows and on to an estate of housing that was spruced up just last year. Between each row of houses there's a green area. They are mainly laid out to grass but also planted up with trees. I noticed, as I drew near to this tree, that there was an awful lot of noise coming from the highest branches. Starlings - at least fifteen, perhaps more, were chattering away to each other. Probably enjoying the early spring sunshine as much as I was. Cheered me up no end.

I'm hoping to get out for a daily walk now that spring seems to have arrived at last and maybe see more signs that summer isn't so far away.

Take care and stay safe.

So pleased you managed to have a quick trot around the estate and blew the cobwebs away.
