With the brilliant sunshine, warm breezes and these dreamy blue skies we've been having here in the Lake District, there have been no shortages of photo opportunities involving beautiful hedgerows dotted all over with bright, colourful flowers and plants.
I had to ask any brilliant botanists to identify this particular flower as I had no idea! But the lovely Karen from Wild Wings and Wanderings knew straight away who these bright pink petals belonged to. This is a Ribes Sanguineum or a Flowering Currant! Karen's blog is perfect if you're a nature lover like myself and features brilliant photography and interesting topics, so pay her a visit, if you wish!
I am loving the variety of Daffodils springing up around here and the different colours have bathed the hedgerows and the garden in bursts of yellows, oranges and creams.
I'm so happy to see Daisies popping up now too!
The Heather is nearly taking over the garden now, and there have been honey bees buzzing about too, happily collecting nectar. I am hoping to get a few good photos of the bees as more of them come back to the garden - I do love this time of year!
I hope you're all well and enjoying the sun!
