Twin Falls to Barton Springs

Seeding

Planted more seed mats in the garden today and dug out some of the Periwinkle (Vinca) which is creeping everywhere.

Saw a damselfly in the garden too ... it briefly landed on my trousers. I think it was a Winter Damselfly (Sympecma fusca). First time I've seen this in the garden.

We had a frost overnight ... which I hope has done no damage. a few of the daffodils looked a bit wilted first thing but they seem to have recovered OK during the day. It's a warm day with clear blue skies again.

This Time Last Year


Today we drive out to the Green Belt and do a long walk from Twin Falls to Barton Springs. We have to wade across the river at one point. It takes us about four hours. It's strange though how the river bed is dry in many places.

We cross over the river for a drink in Uncle Billies, tasting a sampler of six local beers.

Alex and Paige come down to join us and then give us a lift back to our car.

In the evening William cooks up a BBQ and we sit on the steps later drinking a few beers. It's Suzanne's last night.
