April is for Cycling

Last Year I accepted the challenge to cycle every day of the month. I failed. The weather last year was wet. Very wet. Not having an exercise bike, I resorted to cycling by proxy, reading Andrew’s entertaining Good Vibrations. He’s off again this summer, so another wet April, I hope to comfort myself by reading the sequel.
This year I signed up for the challenge again, but acknowledged there would be several days when I would not be on two wheels. Some days I’d be afloat, some days the bus would be more practical for what I need to do and where I need to go.
So I am hoping today qualifies as two days. I was on my bike, so I get a nice tick for that. I also took some pictures.
I have posted photos of this wonderful piece of topiary before, but that’s no reason not to celebrate it again. Also, this time there are tulips.

Had it not been for a park vehicle moving very slowly and with absolutely no regard for anyone else – no indication, blocking the path – I probably should not have realised there is a new cycling reference in the park. It must have been there when I went by this morning, but I didn’t notice it.
I am guessing that they are going to be planted with flowers, and I am really looking forward to seeing what they look like in a couple of months when it is midsummer. They look fabulous now, so in June they should be gorgeous.

  1. Good luck on the bike Isobel. Great pics. I was fully intending to do the April challenge but got ill and am only now able to get back in the saddle. Maybe I’ll do May instead… 🙂

  2. Well done you for getting on your bike! the little topiary is so sweet, what patience to create it. I look forward to seeing the flower bikes in a few months 🙂

    • I had a quick look when I went by today to see if there were any plants but not yet. Or maybe I am wrong about the plants; maybe they will be covered with another material. Fun to see!

  3. Very very cool photos Isobel! I am glad you are doing the challenge. Getting in the days you can is better than not having done it at all. I bet you love it! Guess what! I am a Great Aunt!! We just got back from a couple days out of town holding our Great Nephew! Born April 15!!
