Today we took separate Daily Walks. OH went one way this morning, I went the other way this afternoon. We haven’t fallen out, it is just the way it happened. There was an advantage to being on my own, I had more opportunity to be nosy. I peered over walls and around fences, I crossed the road when something caught my eye. I examined the ground, I looked into the sky, all the while retaining my best suspicion-free demeanour. There were several rather pink people sunbathing in their front gardens, I kept my camera far away. These were not my quarry, I was looking for flowers. And I found them; back-lit tulips in a state of disrobing, forget-me-nots growing from cracks in the tarmc, marigolds perched on walls. This was my favourite and, after first checking for bees in the buzzing bush, I buried my nose into the blossom to enjoy my first scent of lilac for the year.
