This week I've been spotting wild flowers.
I found these Lesser Celandine flowers growing alongside the verges by the river, their sunny petals adding some much needed colour to the hedgerows. I can't wait for more to bloom as when I first arrived up here the river bank was alive with colour.
I also found some Lady's Smock/Cuckoo flowers, which I found out are named because they bloom alongside the first sign of the returning Cuckoo's to the UK, or so I've read. I really like the lilac colour and they were all clustered along the riverbank. I hope I see some butterflies soon!
Not the best of photos but this colourful Pheasant has been wandering around outside for the past few days too, and he always runs off before I can get a decent photo so I'm on a mission to try and get closer!
Springy Lambs! They've moved across to the field on the other side of the river now but I can still hear them baaing away.
And a sunny River Derwent on my walk into town this week too. Welcome back April!
Have a lovely Easter!
