Spring is definitely here at last. I went for a fab walk yesterday at a place called Erbistock on the Welsh border. We walked along the River Dee and took in wild daffodils (much more beautiful and delicate than the garden ones) and violets. The sun was beating down so hard that I started to pretend that I was on holiday. The Boat pub next to the river is also a dream with log fires burning and incredibly attentive & friendly bar staff. All in all a great day of escapism.
