THE TINKER’S TRAIL – HARLINGTON WALKS

Where to walk near Harlington on this cold and wet morning?  Ah, February, a time of hunkering down, sheltering from the rain but yet, hope.  Always hope that Spring will soon be here.  I was so grateful that I roused myself from the couch on a damp and dismal day to take this four and…
