Easter newness

There was a new feel about the Trail today, of things waiting to surprise. A Sparrowhawk soaring in bold circles high directly over Waitrose was a surprise, for a start. Greater Celandine and Henbit were nice sightings along the trail. The Polypody fern in Church Street is now in three places. The Kingcups at the Pond were a fine show. Five Chiffchaffs and one Blackcap were in song along the route. But the nicest was just the freshness of everything, of new life, of spring, Easter, resurrection and the handiwork of Him who threw the stars into space.  - George
