Hat Trick

Following on from a rainless Saturday and Sunday, Monday too turned out to be precipitation free. The sun came out in the morning and the promise of spring was showing as our miniature Tête-à-tête daffodils and crocuses almost made it into flower.

As we are looking after our part time dog Tivvy we decided to make the most of a lovely sunny day and have a walk around Roundhay Park in Leeds.
Lots of other visitors had decided to make the most of a fine day. Lots were walking their dogs, others were feeding the masses of gulls and ducks on the lake.
The gulls were great viewing as they took off from the water only to land again in a great squabbling mass where food was thrown for them. The geese had a far more tranquil attitude in trying to secure their food supply from their personal supermarket by the lakeside.
We spent the afternoon watching the bird life feeding and having a walk around the lakes. By the time we decided to head for home and miss the rush hour traffic around Leeds the sun had disappeared and the wind made it suddenly feel much cooler.

    1. We are lucky to have a part time dog. I must admit she does get us out walking more.
