A winter walk

There was a window of opportunity today to take a walk in some winter sunshine.  We have seen little of it over the past two or three weeks.  All the snow has melted now.  We didn't have very much in this part of East Lothian although the Lammermuir Hills to the south are still white in the distance.

The winter countryside is almost completely colourless, grasses washed out and branches only just showing tiny new buds.
There are occasional splashes of vivid colour.
But there are also those longed for, magical, first signs of Spring and new life!  Wonderful!
It was a good walk!
