There's been a lot of sun and warm weather this week which has brought out all of the local wildlife and having such beautiful weather here, there has been no shortage of things to do and places to go.
Day 8. Hints of Green
Out for a quick walk and the way the sun was reflecting off of the leaves looked so pretty and calming.
Day 9. All Grown Up
The lambs are so much bigger now and look more like their mums than the little, gambolling fluffy babies that were born back in April. I always see them spending time along the river, they love it there!
Day 10. Riverside Wanderings
I came back along the river again as the day was so hot and the cool water was calling to me. I love the way these trees have twisted and bent along the riverside.
Day 11. Woodcarving
I found these old stumps along the river, with sheep's wool attached, and I love the different patterns and colours of the notches on the wood - nature's own form of art.
Day 12. May Bug!
This impressive little one was found scuttling across our living room floor so I carefully took it back outside and this cute beetle was kind enough to let me take some photos before it warmed up and flew off into the sky, probably to find a more suitable new home than on our carpet where I only just narrowly missed treading on it!
Day 13. Lazy Flower Fields Days
Off for another walk in the sun, up the small hill to take in the wild-flowers and listen to the birds chirping away.
Day 14. Swans-a-Swimming
This swan is one of a pair which currently has three lovely cygnets, which at this point were all bundled away back in their nest, but were so cute nonetheless. I'll keep my eyes out for them over the next few days and hopefully I can get another photo of them at some point!
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!
