Trees fallen, spring flowers

There are an amazing number of trees going over this spring. It seems like everywhere you go there are toppled trees.  Here's Brythen inspecting one we found earlier.



The wood anemones are out already along the river...


And Rosie leading me off along the primrose path.


She didn't vanish today, which is good news.  She still has this tendency if she feels a walk is too short of taking off until she thinks she's had enough, which is usually after about 3-4 hours.  The problem is that walking for four hours every day is a bit of a big ask, and also, poor Brythen, who has greyhound feet, tends to start limping after walking for so long  (as does Pp.  When we went to the beach on Monday, about six miles or so with a break for lunch, the boys were definitely the ones who were suffering by the time we got back to the car.  :-D

Before his feet got sore he was happy though:


Rosie at the cafe, unimpressed that her sausage had not yet made a appearance.


Rosie does not limp.  Rosie just goes... and goes... and goes.     On Friday she found a whole series of empty cornfields, all with open gates connecting them, and we were there for quite some time as she went around... and on, and on, and around... and around.   It was quite dark by the time she consented to come back, although at least she was in sight all the time and there were no crops or livestock.

We lost a big tree one spring because the ground was so wet and never froze enough so the roots couldn't hold... Luckily it fell on our neighbors property - between their house and garage... Kind of missing everything important

Lucky! Our ground here is always wet and practically never frozen, so I suppose it's surprising really we don't have more of them fall over. But this year it's like someone has been playing pick-up sticks with trees all over the place...

Anemones! I must go anemone hunting this week, now we've had some warm sunshine at last...

To look at Rosie - so dainty - you wouldn't think she could run Brythen and Pp into the ground!

At least the corn field was empty. Pip once vanished into a field of standing maize, and once the rustling died away in the distance, the chances of ever locating him seemed quite small.

Her one saving grace is that she doesn't do deep cover. Give her an open skyline, and I'd better have my running shoes on, but at least being almost white, you can see her. Sometimes, admittedly, as a tiny, fast-moving dot... *grits teeth*
