Early March

Well, I must have gone back to work. I mean physically back to work, rather than working from home. Until March I’d been out for a walk most days, but then the wheels came off. Working for a living is highly inconvenient. Anyway – here’s most of March:

The 1st

Spring! I’m sure that the celandines had been flowering for a while at this point, and the Cuckoo Pint leaves hadn’t recently appeared on the floor of Eaves Wood…

Maybe it was the blue skies and sunshine which made me pay attention to them. And to the wash of yellow catkins on the Hazel trees.

I do remember showing TBH the tiny red male flowers, like little starfish, on the Hazels, which apparently she hadn’t seen before.

There’s a garden on The Row which has an amazing display of crocuses every year, which I always make a point of going to see.

The 2nd

P1320955

A walk around Gait Barrows most memorable for this pair of Buzzards. I’ve become very wary (well frightened, if I’m honest) of these birds, having been attacked a few times by highly aggressive/protective tiercels during the nesting season. On the other hand, they are beautiful birds, and I’m drawn to them, like a moth to the flame perhaps. So here, I was gradually creeping towards the tree they were perched in, hoping that it was too early in the year for them to take umbrage, but also half hiding behind a small hummock, the top of which can be seen in the photo.

The light, unfortunately, was a bit rubbish, which doesn’t really square with these two views of Hawes Water…

…which can’t have been taken very long afterwards.

The 5th

I must have been a bit late leaving the house, since the sun was already setting.

To the Pepper Pot and then The Cove with TBH and ‘Little S’.

One of those days when the a layer of cloud coverage had a very visible edge with clear skies beyond.

A walk around the coast to Arnside for a pie with TBH. No return over the Knott however and not many photos either.

I’m assuming that there followed a couple of weeks of very iffy weather, because I don’t seem to have got out much until later in the month. Or a couple of weeks of extreme lassitude on my part. Or both.

  1. Pushing on to Easter on these posts. Love how you are able to pick the best photos for each of the days and make a great post all together. Agree that work gets in the way of walks, I’ve been in the office each day (bar hols) since Jan 6th, so only weekend outings for me in the main
