* 37 *

I never did get around to showing you the walk we went on last Sunday did I .... note to self , sort out pics!!

So did you get up to anything nice this weekend? We were supposed to go on a trip with my parents on Saturday but due to a batch of dodgy prawns on Friday night I didn't dare leave the house on Saturday so everything has been squashed into today.

We had a quick dodge into town to stock up on a few bits and pieces , home for a quick lunch and then straight down the park. It would have been a shame to waste the gorgeous sunshine.

Wellies on as the ground is still a bit muddy but definately warmer and signs of life all around.

The birds were singing and the wood pigeons were getting up to all kinds of shenanigans !!

Soon this avenue of trees will be bursting with buds and it will become a green canopy.

To the right of the path a tease of what is yet to come.

At the end of the path you look down the hill and just look at all the gorgeousness.... I know I showed some photos before but because the sun was shining all the flowers were open and smiling proudly.

Halfway down the hill,

and then looking back up . A sea of purple and white .

Crossing a little bridge the stream actually has some water rippling down for a change and very pretty it looks too.

We watched a squirrel run up this tree but he was too far away for us to share him with you.

A quick stop in the playpark where the usual fighting and bickering started but I won't show you those photos. I'm sure we all know what it's like when children start squabbling with each other. Something to show them when they are older though - chuckle.

Back around the other side of the park where there are yet more crocus's. I really wish I could take you on a walk with us as the pictures just don't do them justice.

The crows are busy nest building and were making such a racket but still lovely to hear.

After such a lovely walk the squabbling soon turned to laughter ,

despite the falling over and the clattering of the face on the ground. Which I hasten to add scared the living daylights out of me as I thought he'd smashed his teeth......

Hope you had a good one too.

That is beautiful, where is that!? I love the carpet of crocuses.

Glad your little one is ok. Smashed teeth would have been very scary!
