At last the trees are budding Am I the only one that thinks the trees have taken ages this year to get into bud?
But suddenly there is the promise of spring, and if you look you will also see blue sky in the background. I am conscious that this is the time of year we can see our neighbours across the Bronnie Burn. Yet in a few weeks time the tress will put on their garments of green and there will be nothing but a hint of the houses through the green curtain of leaves.
How I love the ever changing view, and the close contact you get with the changing seasons when you live in the country. Who cares about the travel into town every day – it is well worth the time and effort to come back to this lovely spot and hide away amongst nature in the evenings and at the weekend.
