Things are greening and warming up. One week until my holiday, so the apple trees better hurry up and get their blossoms on. Once again, Maggie refused to go for a long walk, so we just fooled around down by Whitemud Creek amongst the bees and tiny blue butterflies. She availed herself of the cool water a few times, while I stood on the ‘shore’, taking bad photographs and watching my skin turn red. Wrong part of the day to take pictures. Too bright and washed out. Nevertheless, an enjoyable, if short amble for us both.
