|The crocuses around the monument|
Today we went to the Quarry a recreation area alongside the River Severn. It's a great place to walk the dog as it's mud free. There's a lovely place there called The Dingle where there are lovely flower beds and a small lake with fountains. There's a monument in the gardens to Perry Thrower who was head gardener. Today it was beautiful with all the crocuses. There are beds with daffodils, hyacinths and tulip leaves peeping through amongst the flowering yellow polyanthus, so in a few weeks it will be even lovelier.
The children's play area was busy with shrieks delight. You could hear them before you could see them. During the winter the coffee cabin was missing but now it's back so Eric had a coffee and a had a very nice hot chocolate.
Back on the boat the water tank is filling as the wind blows. After all we're in windy Whixall.
