April showers are not uncommon of course, but getting two seasons in the same day is always a challenge. Having been out running in shorts and a running vest in the morning, a huge hail storm in the afternoon gave the impression that it might have been winter.
This even left a snowy effect on the thatched roof of the cottage next door:
Back in the sunshine, another one of our regular visitors braves a graze in the paddock – probably aware that the “fearsome” dog may be watching him but from behind a window.
More visitors in the field next door – not sure where they have come from although there are a number of these Canada Geese living on the lake on a golf course about 6 miles away. I suspect there is somewhere nearer where these two might inhabit.
Sunsets are a feature of the open skies here as I mentioned before – here are two star-crossed lovers enjoying a bit of a kiss and a cuddle in an oak tree as the sun sets on a lovely spring evening.
