First time out on the bike for a while ( for me, not Harry). Perfect weather, sunny, warm, a slight breeze. The scent of pollen - cow parsley along the roadsides, wallflowers, lilac blossom - some lilac seems to have escaped to live among the wild hawthorns too.
across the hillside
splashes yellow paint
Wisteria hangs theatrical fringes
Round the cottage window
Ready for the summer show.
I lick salt sweat from my lips,
Mixed with the taste of fresh brewed tea.
