Something in the air

Warm in the daytime. Lazy, sunny, hazy light. A fabulous golden hour. The days are really opening out now, and today’s ride was jacketless. Staffordshire and the Chase were looking wonderful. The green hasn’t quite arrived yet, but the first daffy are showing. Everything seems brighter, released. Two months ago I was very ill, now, with the warmth on my back and power in my legs, I’m ready again. We survived another winter, and now nature awakens. Wonderful.
