Easter greetings to those of you who celebrate Easter.
It seemed like quite a promising day this morning with plenty of blue in the sky and light winds as I walked up to say hello to the ponies. Peter went out for an early morning row, just a half session with the social rowers as he is recovering from his latest bout of arthritis. Although I'm on a diet I allowed myself some chocolate this morning because it's Easter (I know that's not a good reason and yes I was 'off diet' last weekend too).

Earlier I had been pottering around the scree garden with a blackbird singing away in a nearby tree. I attempted to increase his wide and varied repertoire by teaching him Peter's phone ring tone but he was more interested in a singing match with another blackbird somewhere down the valley. I've spotted 2 pampas grass seedlings in the scree garden which I shall move near to the big pampas grass stand which I fear is on its last legs.
