A Meander

I was meandering back from my lunchtime pint along the river in the pleasant March sunshine. A Green Woodpecker laughed loudly at me from high in the woods. Then another woodpecker, this one a Greater Spotted, joined in by hammering away at a tree. On the woodland fringes bright yellow Lesser Celandine were in flower. Soon they will be followed by Wood Anemone then Bluebells and soon Wild Garlic. Reaching my back gate I heard the wild honking of the Canada Geese down on the lake. I love this time of year with its promise of things to come.

And if you want to know what this has has got to do with Turkey - well the original Meander is a river in Turkey, not far from Izmir, and is now called BŁyŁk Menderes. Which you probably knew anyway.
