Coppice Pond green
That weather when you set off for work early, in a thick coat, boots and gloves - and it's chilly. But when you set off for home in the late afternoon, everyone out there is in shorts and flip-flops...
There were just a couple of days like that recently, before it reverted to much colder temperatures generally (and even snow, as I mentioned yesterday!). The warm evenings seemed too good to miss, so one day when I arrived home I hopped straight in the car and drove up to the nearby Bingley St Ives estate. I took a walk through the woods and around the Coppice Pond and sloughed off that 'office feeling' in the fresh air and late afternoon sunshine. It's a lovely walk and the fresh greens are amazing, although I'm not sure all that growth in the lake is healthy.
