Satisfaction is when the numbers all tumble over and you begin a new 100. Back last year I did a blog called Hi Ho Silver where I set out on my trusty bike to conquer those extra pounds that were piling up. Well today my dial turned over to 1400 and what a great sense of elation and satisfaction I got as those numbers tumbled over. The ponds have been shed but a relaxing holiday in sunny Malta recently added a few on. The buzz is back and they will soon be sliding off again.
Today I was invited to look around a private woodland to see the mass of bluebells. What a wonderful opportunity and one not to miss. Wow what a beautiful sight too.
A sea of blue and the fragrance was out of this world.
Also I got to see wild orchids, kingcups, primroses, naturalised lily of the valley. Huge swathes of them. Their tiny white bells just beginning to open. Seventeen Roe deer, 2 muncjacks, 6 hares, huge wood ants, pheasants, partridge, herons on their nest high up in the tree tops, peacocks and a Greylag goose, who had a nest of 6 eggs.
