Lost -- one Spring. If found, please return to the UK

This is not funny!

It's raining slush. I don't know whether this is semi-frozen rain or slightly thawed hail, but either way it's nasty out there. :(

And it's my day off and I wanted to get a few miles nearer Rivendell and try out my new wide-angle attachment that arrived yesterday.

Even while I've been typing this, it's now firmed up into proper hail, but it's coming down even harder.

Spring has been found again!

It seems that Spring was just temporarily mislaid. I've just spent a few minutes photographing the flowering cactus thing that I bought yesterday because it was reduced to £1.99 in the Co-op. Off out now to try the wide-angle lens converter. May be pictures later.

Oh, in other plant related news, a third tomato seed had germinated!

Where I went today...

I just walked over the footbridge across the river, past the college where G works and round the by-pass to the old bridge at Llanelltyd -- and back again, of course. :)

Llanelltyd Bridge

After the awful weather this morning, the sky was typical April blue and white. It was still cold though and I needed my gloves.

The bridge is something of a local beauty spot and there's a caravan site just nearby. Also the remains of Cymer Abbey, which I visited once years ago, but I don't think I photographed. Being a weekday, there were very few people there, just me, a man walking a Dalmation and a young chap having a nap in his van.
