While winter has it's own special charm, the blooms of spring and summer will always hold a special place in my heart and I apologise for all of the floral, nature photos I've been sharing lately - my blog has become a bit of an amateur nature photography blog, but everyone always leaves such lovely comments so I seem to be doing something right! With that said, I've been out and about, as always, camera in hand, seeking the sun and capturing nature through a lens!
These dainty little purple/blue flowers were climbing up this stone wall, seeming to reach for the sun, and they found it!
A curious lamb at the river's edge. This little one just looked so sweet standing there. After this he/she bounded along the river's edge to join the little gang of lambs which has formed in the field and is very sweet to watch whenever you wander by.
Make a wish! Whenever I see Dandelions I'm always transported back to hazy school days, making a wish and then blowing on the seeds and watching them float away!
I thought this Tulip was a beautiful colour, it's a gorgeous deep purple.
The Swallows have officially arrived, and each morning they flit about, sit on the telephone wires and chirp away - one of my favourite birds!
As have the Bumblebees! I think this is a Buff Tailed Bumbelee, and I half wondered if this was a Queen as she was quite big and her tail is a sandy colour as opposed to the white one of the worker bees - trying my hand at improving the ID skills here!
Buttercups and Dandelions as far as the eye can see!
I hope you've all had a wonderful week and are looking forward to the weekend - here's hoping it's as sunny as it's been here.
