To my mother (who probably won’t get to read this unless I print it off for her) and to all the other mothers out there, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
And what a strange Mother’s Day it’s been. Conversations through windows and walks 2 metres apart from each other. Presents left on doorsteps wearing gloves. Mothers pleading and trying to bend the rules a bit. Imagined hugs and kisses.
As we try to interpret the latest daily briefing from the PM, and it looks like this one again can be interpreted in many different ways, I thought I would endeavour to do a daily briefing from The Windsor Waffle. I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep it up but I’ll give it a go. I know at least a couple of my friends reading this blog are self isolating and one in particular said I must keep it up to keep her sane, so here goes!
Apart from all the challenges we are facing at the moment in our daily lives, what a glorious spring day it was today. I put on my short jacket rather than my big winter coat. It was a bit windy but fresh rather than cold and the sun was gorgeous.
I am becoming a snapaholic these days out on my walks, stopping to take pictures on my phone of things that inspire me along my route. There is a lot out there at the moment that is lovely. These are some of my favourites:
This stunning bloom above was at Savill garden, just on the outskirts of the garden as the entrance itself is closed at the moment. I also liked this fresh new growth below (which was actually quite tiny, I zoomed in a lot) that will emerge later into some enormous triffid-like plant.
On my walk to work as I am no longer getting the bus, I especially enjoyed this sky.
These two pigeons in a tree caught my eye in Crowthorne today.
And these images below were on our walk around the block in Windsor this afternoon. Looks like proper holiday blue sky.. (ah, holidays, remember those?)
Sorry I still haven’t got over my tree fetish, as you can tell.
And last but not least I leave you with this glorious sunset just behind my house.. the sun looks like a great ball of fire, which I guess it is!
I wish you all lots of luck this week, good health and delicious meals for tonight. We had a fab Indian takeaway last night and I am just about to serve up our roast chicken dinner now. In some ways life is still good.
