Country Lore

My first Rose of the year has bloomed and it has 3 hearts! 

and smells FABULOUS! 

On Friday hubby (who is training to be a volunteer walk leader) went on our first official walk with the healthy walk club folk - and despite being about 20 years younger than most there I still managed to huff and puff my way around 3 miles, arrive back last, hot tired and red! oh how fit am I...urghhh


Although these guys made me remember a train journey from many years ago
In the next table of seats to my mum and I on the train were 4 lads of Liverpudlian origin having one of those conversations you just can't help but listen and smile at - it went something like this...

"If it means it's going to rain when the cows lie down, what does it mean if sheep lie down?"

"Light showers with intermittent sunshine"

perfect.
