The pace of spring is quickening, even if the wind off the sea is rather cold and the sun variable. Dispatched off out with littlest ones whilst Easter Sunday lamb was being herb crusted and merangue merangued. Headed off around Gresham, Baconsthorpe and back via Itteringham and Ingworth.
Rapeseed dominates the early cropping around here.
Ramsons (wild garlic)are just beginning to break through on the shaded verges and in the copses
Blue is not just from the bells
A stunning entrance to Wolterton Hall which is somewhat out of the way
I rather like this battered wind vane with it's imperious totem, definitely bearing an adipose fin
A beautiful millpool on the Upper Bure below Itteringham
This used to be on a 37 and a half pence day ticket, along with several other stretches of the Bure including Oxnead which is now on my Captain's syndicate book. Simply gorgeous, one of Norfolk's 9 chalk streams I am told.
And just before the Jolly Farmer at Swanton Abbot, one of those part tended verges that seem to extend some county gardens across the road.
Some self deprecating English humour near Baconsthorpe to round off the day
