Slow Sunday

The overnight rain had passed through by the time the morning came. The sun shone, the skies were blue and it was a lot warmer.
Looking up our street at blue skies and sunshine was a treat. 
 Walking Bella, looking out at Solsbury Hill down Malvern Terrace.
The only patch of snow we saw this morning - what a change from the last week or so. 
Down on Fairfield Park Road a hole has been dug, pipes deposited and some nice green barriers put around the area. As to what it's for…?
Later on, we decided that we really ought to go out and enjoy some more of the nice weather. As I was putting my walking boots on, I saw this prismatic effect from sunlight falling through the glass over our front door into the hallway.
We drove through sunshone up to Westonbirt, where the wind was chilly and the skies foreboding. 
looking the other way was much more promising, but we walked in the direction of the grey skies and ended up in a sleet shower for about 10 minutes. 
This headline was how we felt, having erroneously thought that winter might be behind us… 
After that, the sun came out and the wind died down so the rest of our walk was much morer pleasant. Bella didn't mind - she had a nice stick to carry round and chase when she could convince one of us to throw it for her.
This day a year ago, the weather was bright and sunny. One consequence of the clear skies all night was some dramatic frost patterms on car windscreens. 
Tonight we're off out for a Thai supper and then to the Little Theatre to see "The Sessions" with Helen Hunt and William H Macy - review tomorrow.
