Well let's start March "Project 365" for 2019 

Thanks everyone for the feedback of likes and comments etc, it's what kept me going it's getting harder by the day but I will battle on. Well we started March with a dull flat wet sort of day February started with snow and this time last year we had the beast from the east. I nearly used the pups again as they are 6 months old today.

Here's a link to all the photos from the this year so far and the previous two years Project 365
Thanks John

Hardwick Park Evening Stroll.
I love it when its quiet at Hardwick Park with just the pups for company, you hear lots of different birds singing. I cannot understand people walking round the park with earphones in when you have natures own orchestra playing for free. I love the bridge over the serpentine and dependant on how still the water is you sometimes get a lovely mirror reflection in the river.
