Time for month two – February. I have been waiting for over a week for a sunny day and today arrived with a blue sky. At least until I got out there and then the clouds returned.
Not much has changed around the castle grounds. Trees still bare. And no sign of life from the pollarded limes.
Date: February 17 2015
Weather: sunshine and cloud
Temperature: Cold (4°C)
Time: 10 – 11 am
I did spot something different on the way down to Dinham bridge; snowdrops on the lawn outside St John’s Chapel. And the catkins are shrinking and turning brown.
Walking over Dinham bridge I spotted a buzzard overhead, but I didn’t manage a photo as I was asked for directions by a couple of walkers. Back on to the Breadwalk and the path is muddy today, although there was an early frost. No sign of my swans yet, but the birds are singing loudly and the path is busy with dog-walkers and families on this Shrove Tuesday. A dead tree/branch has been swept downstream and is stuck on the Mill Weir.
Can you see the swans?
I caught up with ‘my’ swans at the Ludham bridge where the water level looks lower than this time last month. And where I lost the sun.
Not much is happening along Lower Broad Street. A few bulbs are popping up in the pots, the ‘cherries’ are shrinking and wrinkling and a beautiful kitty posed for a photo.
The Cardinal has decided to have a photo project going throughout 2015 – a blogging event, a monthly photo challenge. Find a location near your home, take somewhere between 5-20 photos and post them in a gallery in your blog. Continue to do this every month. The idea is to capture all the changes: the seasons, the weather, different times of the day, some night photography perhaps?
I’m hoping that next month we might see some more greenery. See you then!
