A meeting at the park gates
Most days my wife and I go for a leisurely perambulation around the park and do a few circuits before returning home for a cup of tea and it isn't unusual to meet a friend or a neighbour. Yesterday we did both. At times we want to stride out and go home feeling as we have just completed a very mini-marathon. Other times, the chance to stop and chat is what makes Lenton Recreation Ground such a wonderful place to have right outside our front door. Parks are for leisure and exercise; for solitude and for company.

As the days get brighter, longer, and warmer, the park, just like the flowers, begins to uncurl and show signs of what is to come as spring takes over. To watch this happen day-by-day is a very real privilege.
