Gathering bits

It's lovely walking now in the cold freshness of midwinter. I took the dogs for a slow circuit of Victoria Park.

Soft walking on the dirt tracks and puddles to look into or splash through.

We enjoyed every puddle.

Loreto College was all misty through the trees. What a pleasure to be too old to have to go to school. How lucky to be able to wander through the park instead.

I gathered lichens for dyeing cloths, a whole bagfull of branches and twigs broken off and tossed through the park by the squalls of wind over the last few days.

Now I just have to find a glass saucepan or two.

The dogs were so grateful to get home they curled up at once and have slept through the day.
