A Walk in the Park

The sun did shine this weekend and I couldn’t resist going for a walk in a park to see what nature could show me! I was not disappointed. There was an amazing tableau of colour presenting itself to us all as we strolled along the paths.

Apart from the breathtaking flora I had to say, ‘hallo’ to my friend the duck who was napping!


Afternoon siesta for this duck








Then we strolled by a nearby lake and look what we found!!! Millions of tadpoles…

If you click on the picture to enlarge it you will be able to make out the black dots with the wiggly tails.



Even the water lilies are trying to open their petals.

Breathtaking photographs! We have a park near us, Cannon Hall, where the rhododendrons are always stunning. Isn't it amazing how it all just happens at once, we notice this especially with our lime tree, only a couple of weeks ago it was just buds and now it's in full leaf.
