Mood is a strange thing. I just woke up this morning feeling happy. Then the kids were nice. The sun shone.
I went for a walk with the dog. Spring really is here, at last.
Things I saw during the walk: (1) a heron catch and eat a fish. That’s the first time I’ve seen that. (2) A red admiral butterfly – the first of the season. (3) Profuse, extravagant blossom on the hedgerows (pictured).
And the six bottles of Palliser Estate Pinot Noir I’d ordered (£80 for six from winedirect.co.uk) arrived. I tasted this at Pinot Noir 2010, blind, and it showed really well. I hope it tastes as good sighted, here in London.
