Winter has gone I think – at least in Worcestershire. But it is still cold, and there is still snow on the Malvern Hills and also on the hills in the Cotswolds, where I was on the lookout for signs of spring…
As I have done many times before I went to Stow-on-the-Wold, where I know a cosy café with delicious cakes and a good book shop with a very friendly dog – and after visiting both I went for a walk.
There were many people in the town because of an Antique Fair, but you didn’t have to move very far away from the centre to feel the town’s peaceful atmosphere.
And the signs of spring appeared in containers and beds in front of the houses; a restaurant had filled its window boxes with hyacinths, which were just waiting for a little more heat from the sun.
Afterwards I continued the journey to Broadway and Snowshill, where I was to pick up supplies of lovely lavender soaps for my shop. Again, there were lots of signs of spring – they were small, but they were there. Everywhere…!
