A tile mosaic of the nearby signal box, newly erected beside the track. I’m not sure why, and the mighty timbers supporting it look extremely determined, but it’s a bit of art in the landscape and I won’t complain at that.
We got a bit rained on, but the ground hound didn’t mind too much. Very little bird life to see, but there were a few people walking up and down.
We’ve had an inch and a half of rain since the year began, and the wind has made it feel most unpleasant. The weather will change, though, in a few weeks. Birds will sing and nest. Frogs will visit ponds. Coltsfoot will flower – if it grows round here – and the chthonic kunarion and I will feel the suns warmth on our backs.
