Hello, isn't it great to see the sun again? With the bit of rain we had last week everywhere is suddenly looking a lot more fresh and alive. The daffs and forsythia are really cheering the place up and the primroses and cowslips are finally beginning to show their faces.
I haven't done much recently. Eldest daughter has been here for a couple of weeks and it was good to catch up with all her news before she returned to London. The house felt a bit quiet this morning so I took myself off for a drive in search of some lambs! The black sheep were out in their field, but it must be a bit early as there were only a handful of lambs, too far away to photograph.
I had more luck a bit further on where some white ones were frolicking around and came up to the fence to see me.
This is a lovely sight. Acres and acres of new woodland and hedgerows have been planted. It all helps the wildlife!
Talking of wildlife, I found some more little egg shells in the garden and added them to my box of "interesting bits and pieces" I think the tiny one is a blue tit's, the larger one from a thrush and the others are blackbird's. There's also some butterfly wings, and fossilised things and a beautiful tiny wasp nest. I think these little ones are made by the overwintering queen.
A proper display case is next on my list of things to look for, then I can look out for lots more bits.
