BITS AND PIECES ROUND THE PARK
The two swans that arrived on the lake a few days ago are still here, and look very settled. However, it has been fiendishly difficult to get a photograph of them together, but there are definitely two, and they look pretty much identical! Taking photos with a dog on a lead is very difficult, and I don't always take my camera with me. When I don't, I can guarantee there will be something I wanted to take!
This is the view we see as we come out of the gate from our garden into the park. On a fine weekend you have to be careful not to get hit by flying golf balls, as we are directly opposite the third green! However, it has all been looking very nice since the grass was mown, and the sun shone!
The May (Hawthorn) trees are in full bloom, this particular one looks really lovely by the lake. Yes, that is my dog, Max, standing mournfully at the extent of the lead, waiting for me to get a move on!
The variegated holly bush sends out lovely little pink new leaves.
And despite being snowed under, walked over and sledged on in the winter, the pansies have made a great show down by the bandstand!
The weather has turned quite cold again, but I really must get out with my camera again soon! You are probably all wondering if I ever do anything but walk round the park! Well, yes, I do sometimes! ;)
