This Green And Pleasant Land

The older I get, the more I seem to notice the changing of the seasons. Commuting to Uni on a bike has helped, spending an hour out in the weather every day come rain or shine certainly heightens familiarity with seasonal patterns! My favourite thing about spring is how everything just bursts into life, everything is very green at the moment, possibly something to do with the solid couple of weeks of rain we've had. Spring also means some of my favourite seasonal foods are on the menu-purple sprouting broccoli, asparagus, strawberries, elderflowers...

At a loose end last weekend I headed out into the sunshine to south of Bath, for a bit wander. These very green pictures are the result!

I love the architecture of Bath!
I am so excited about the 4 day bank holiday weekend coming up, good to know the Queen is good for something! Lets hope the sun shines.

Costa Del Swanage

Despite the intermittent rain, we made it out into every second of sunshine we could this weekend. I was in Dorset again and I spent a fair bit of the weekend back in my hometown of Swanage with good friends. We explored a couple of the less tourist-filled spots that I haven't visited for quite a while. It is nice to find the forgotten corners of your own hometown. Sunshine, bright blue skies and green green grass can do a lot for the charm of the place.

We climbed up that cliff! that's what happens when you go walking with six boys...

Look at the colour of that sea! I hope you all had a good bank holiday :)

I love my friends :)
