Back at the Park

Hello

How are you?

I'm a little bit out of phase with my posts at the moment but here we are back at the Park on the way to the shops, a necessary trip every couple of weeks as someone keeps eating all the food.  It's great to repeat the same walk regularly as you really notice all the changes that have taken place as the weather warms up.

This time, the pink cherry blossom certainly caught my attention.



Scillas, maybe bifolia, were crowding round one side of the tree, whilst on the other side


the daffodils looked lovely.


Primroses were more prevalent.


All that hard work by the gardeners of a few weeks ago was starting to pay off as the primulas were flowering neatly in the box bordered beds, purple in some, white in the others and a few naughty blue, pink and yellow smiling out in the wrong place.




Wildlifewise, they were busy, busy apart from this one carved into the bench, ready for someone to come along with a piece of paper and a crayon.


The swans were sitting on their usual nest site. Is it that time already or were they just staking a claim?


All's well at the Park even though their funding has been cut by the ever-stretched Council.

Cheerio

  1. Such a lovely walk in the park today! So nice to see all the pretty blooms and the sweet swans. So sad about the funding being cut. We are experiencing that here. Happy Spring! xx Karen
