There are telltale signs that we may be seeing a change in the season which is good news all round. The gorse looks yellower than yellow, the hedges on the cliff are sprouting extremely green shoots and the birds are singing in the sun.
The sun brings people out and the beach was positively busy – about 25 people on the stretch we walked and believe me, for those who don’t know the bay, that is busy at this time of year. One group wore their ‘Where’s Wally’ hats – probably thought the beach would be heaving and they’d be able to stand out in a crowd – they did!!!
Even the backlane has had a Spring haircut, it gives the impression that the road has been widened, which of course is daft. At some places you can even see over the hedge into the field – shock, horror.
Yesterday I saw my first lot of daffodil pickers in the fields around Tregantle Fort, I can’t wait for the fields to turn yellow – then I’ll know that winter is well and truely over.
