a smaller picture
Not quite David Hockney's Woldgate Woods in Spring, but the best I could manage on my ride back through Mile End Park after a bit of yoga. The sight of the crocuses had pretty much the same effect as when I saw Mr Hockney's Bigger Picture at the Royal Academy. It made me smile like a fool. It was as if he had worked in a frenzy of activity to capture the change of season just in case it never happened again. The merest hint of spring can make you feel like that.
I came home and after a snooze - yoga flow can have that effect on me - sat on the back doorstep, doors open wide for the first time this year, and soaked up a bit of sun, cup of cocoa at hand just in case it turned nippy.
