Yesterday, we finally managed to go cycling despite the weather forecast. We took our capes but didn’t need to use them. I love being able to cycle straight out the gate and onto a country road. To go to the forest, you have to go up a little hill, but that’s OK now that I have a bike with lots of gears and suspension. Training helps too! I can still remember pedalling as far as I could beforehand to get up enough speed to save my knees. But it’s worth it when you get up the top.
And you can take a break on this lovely bench surrounded with wild flowers – daisies, buttercups and clover.
There are briar roses out everywhere. Don’t you just love this bush that forms a natural arch.
Then back through the village past delightful little houses with roses over the front door. Can’t wait for our yellow roses to bloom too!
