Walking in Spring

This week I went for a walk.

To see how I would cope with the Race for Life (see sidebar) I went for a four mile roundtrip walk.

I saw some lovely things......I was intrigued by a pedestrian crossing for horses - first clue I live in the country??

Then I turned up the main road and saw some magnificent young bullocks in the field.....I love cows, they are so restful - and they always come over to say hello :-)

Then I turned to photograph where I had walked - which gives a nice idea of my locale....

(we live about two miles to the left of the photo!)

I couldn't resist taking this photo of the meadow I passed.....

Isn't it amazing how resilient flowers are? I loved these two little flowers pushing through the concrete of these walls......
Then I reached the halfway point and turned down the footpath through the fields that would lead back to my home......


And this weekend I am going here:

to do this:


a nice weekend in 14C Caerphilly Castle..... :-)

See you back in the 21C on Monday night....

Have fun in the 14th century - I hope it isn't too cold and drafty! Michele sent me.

I love how those little purple flowers seem to be exploding from that wall :)

Have fun back in time - I hope to pop over and see you there!

Castles are so freaking cool. There should definitely be more castles here in the states.

while you are in the fourteenth century, dear lady, will you retrieve for me some sense of calm, and for my neighbors a packet or two of common decency? I so very much appreciate that?
I need to go camping too! there is so much to learn away from all our 'things'. don't you agree?

Hi CQ: I enjoyed the pics and hope you have a fab week-end. Re the cows or bullocks - for me there has to be a fence betwixt! BTW;do you remember I have had difficulty getting in your comment box? If I R click it opens a new window and all is OK.

I love this sequence of pictures because they're so real - just like you.

I think it would be totally cool to take a walk with you. Maybe someday I'll get to do just that! I'll bring my camera, too.

What a lovely walk, my dear...And he pictures give one such a feeling of "place"...I LOVE those beautiful lavender/blue flowers thriving in all that rock/cement...!
Hope you are having a fine "re-enactment" weekend.

By the way, I too just LOVE cows...
