The joy of spring

Today I woke to heavy rain which has continued, on and off, all through the day.  Yesterday was very different, a beautiful, slightly hazy, soft-light, warm spring day.  I spent it as pleasantly as it deserved.  First gathering pebbles for a "beach" feature I am making in my garden, then strolling, with my regular strolling companion, along an undulating track lined with flowering sage, gorse and a multitude of smaller plants.  The heavily scented track led us from the pebble covered beach which we had plundered, around the back of a headland, to the sandy beach at Zapi where we ate picnics, talked life and books and read poems in the sunshine at Maria's, closed for the winter, taverna.
