A dear friend came yesterday, and went with me on a walk I had been wanting to take, but did not do by myself because of Paul's cautionary voice in my head.
As well as this magnificent creature,
Mallards and ducklings
and many wildflowers in bloom
And all this is an easy walk, right near me, on land that has been set aside since 1621 (I think) as a gift from King George I to a certain family, that then kept it wild. Cool, huh? Paul would have loved it!
