Our first start of day walk by the river in over a month. What is usually a forty five minute stroll takes an hour. There are so many new scents to be savoured. Sophie will not be hurried. There is a French term, 'Tu es tetu', that reflects the PONettes attitude to being told to get a move on.
Strawberries which were E10 for four punnets are now E8 for five. I guess there's a couple more weeks of the growing season left before the heat brings it to an end.
The Old Farmer returns to to the village. His first post lockdown outing. Someone has scratched his car. Its one of those front to back, thin and deep scratches done by a Stanley knife. He claims not to be bothered by this small act of vandalism but I can't help but feel he is. The venerable Mercedes is the pride and joy of this 91 year olds life.
River walk, visit to the strawberry farm and now a chat with the Old Farmer. Sophie does what she always does after a flurry of start of day hyperactivity ..... opts for a restorative nap. This afternoon we get our second jabs.
