I went for a walk in the rain down the old railway line. The countryside really looks just about at its worst at this time of year. Everywhere is brown and battered by the winter storms. The ground is muddy and the spring flowers are not yet out. There were some trees covered in delicate white blossom by the old signal box -- now a bird watching centre. I tried to take some photos, but the twigs were blowing in the wind, so I don't know whether they'l have come out or not.
