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.
