Are we there yet?

by Sue Trollip

Wildflowers! That’s what I want to see, but apparently it’s still too early in the season. I’d need to go to warmer climes for that – and that’s just not possible right now. So instead Sheila and I headed out to Sagehen to see the ‘almost’ blooming buds of spring.


We experienced a little heat and a lot of cold wind, but look at that beautiful sky.


And all the glorious water – can we say, bye bye drought yet?

Sagehen Creek Trail is supposedly a ten kilometre walk, pretty flat too and because of the galloping stream the trail is full of very happy dogs. We were asked if we had a permit to be on the trail without a dog, ha! Next time I shall take Harry, not a hound that likes the water much he will nevertheless be in his social element, and that fluffy mutt does love to run.

The end loop of the trail was lush, green and too wet to sit down. It was also too cold to stay still, but it was a pleasing hint of the joys of summer … just around the corner now.

    I think you live in a paradise of sorts Sue – what a beautiful place. How will the 40km further desert compare???

      It is gorgeous in all it’s stages, the 40kms will hopefully add a little more variety – pink cherry blossoms for example!

  2. Nice blog, Sue – I was walking with you. I’ve got the flowers and sunshine in the U.K. No matter where you are, the sun is shining somewhere and nature is a glorious expression of love and beauty.

      Oh yes, mother nature does it every time – but I do like her best amongst the flowers in the sunshine.

    It looks beautiful where you are, Sue. Glad the weather is (almost) warming up there at last.
