Quick Visit to the Park

Thank you for the kind comments about my little bird, I did enjoy making him and I'm looking forward to making a little friend for him.

Yesterday we were out and about after doing some shopping with a little time to spare before we were going to pick Imogen up from school. Normally she would walk home, but as we were already out and she has a bit of a cold at the moment, we thought we'd surprise her with a lift home. As we would have been about 10 or 15 minutes too early, we went for a quick wheel around the park.



There were flocks of seagulls around, this one above had wandered off by himself looking for some juicy worms I imagine.

The only other birds we saw were crows. I do like crows, such clever birds and they can be quite imposing looking.... not this one though, he was concentrating on finding a nibble or two.



There were patches of Snowdrops all over the place, perhaps past their best, but still beautiful.





Lots of Daffodils too, crops of vibrant yellow on a green carpet.






Rose bushes, looking a bit scruffy as they can, but still with the most beautiful blooms and scents.












Lastly, a few patches with bright, white crocuses




 We weren't there long, but saw so many beautiful flowers, it'll be blossom on the trees next.

Take care

  2. They look like Camellias and seem to be very early, it must be sheltered. I love to see the spring flowers in the grass, there are swathes of snowdrops in the wild area where I pick my ransoms.
