The sun came out, temperatures climbed and we had an unusually nice day yesterday, so Dave and I took Olga to Hyde Park, to let her run around off-leash. She had a great time, as usual. The two of them briefly grabbed a bench near the monument to John Hanning Speke, who traced the Nile River to its headwaters at Lake Victoria.
There were lots of people out and about, some relaxing beneath trees with a book, others romping with dogs and children. You know, the kinds of things people do in parks.
The buds are popping on the horse chestnuts -- at least, I think that's what kind of tree this is! It will be nice to have some greenery again.
Most of the trees right now are still twigs.
