Walnut trees

Which of us sisters is more attractive?

Who is fairest of them all?

The walnut trees, all in a row, are looking at unusually young reflections of themselves this year.

I’ve been very rash and opened up the swimming pool a month earlier than usual.

My rationale was that I have a wetsuit now, but today the water heated up 4 degrees from 15 to 19 in the sun so just before lunch I slipped in, with just a bathing costume, and swam a few lengths – icy but refreshing.

Meantime the walnut catkins were hopefully sowing their wild oats, so to speak, and preparing some nuts for us!

    Love that you were brave enough for an icy dip! Love the catkins too!
