Due to the weather I have not visited the park much this week, so with the sun on my back I went to see how my Larch tree was doing for next weeks post.
In the wood there was a beautiful surprise I found Wood Anemone flowering, there is something special about all the Spring flowers.
Finding Wood Anemone got me searching for other flowers at the park.
Flies were feeding on this Willow blossom, a large Bumble Bee came but flew of before I could take a photo.
All the plans are starting to bud on the old car park hedges.
In the old car park I like to check under the stones, there are old bits of slate roofing were critters can hide.
To day I was rewarded, the soil moved and it turned out to be a small Toad, first one I have recorded at the park. I try not to upset anything I find, just to get a photo, so most of them are of it's butt as it moved under another stone.
Next on to the old weather pitch a Small Tortoiseshell flew up into one of the trees,
first Butterfly of the year.
Blue tit having a good sing song.
There is Celandine flowering all round the park now,
noticed what looks like a egg on one of the petals when I got home, what do you think....
Little old man has had a hair cut..
and I could not leave without showing you some more Sheep, we have Lambs too.
