April Fun

Hello again! We have been making the most of the sunshine before the rain showed up.
Leaping about at Lepe Beach!

Exploring the pebbles.

Black Headed Gulls enjoying an evening paddle.

On our way back we stopped to look at this field of bright yellow rapeseed.

Our garden has a bit of colour now and is looking lovely since Granny and Grampy attacked it with their secateurs!
Planting Pansies.
Erysimum Apricot Delight
Crab apple (well it might be, the top of the tree got broken and this is the root stock).
This tulip keeps popping up. Its been in the Cherry tree pot for about 4 years.
Planting Windmill Flowers - fun to water aswell.
The Bubble Fairy.

Wisteria starting to flower.
Acer leaves.

We had a little explore over at the Manor meadow to see what we could see...


We found the pond and some new arrivals...
Moorhen having a swim.

Lots of baby ducklings!
Update: Granny has informed me that this flower is a Cuckooflower, also commonly known as 'Lady's-smock', it's a pretty springtime perennial of damp, grassy places like wet meadows, ditches and riverbanks, as well as roadside verges. Its pale pink flowers bloom from April to June and are thought to coincide with the arrival of the first cuckoo - a sure sign that spring has arrived at last.

Ooooo! What's that?
There were hundreds of tadpoles. Obviously we were too late for the frogspawn but we can keep visiting to see how they grow.

Pretty Primroses.

By the pond.
You might remember our cheeky caterpillar visitors last year? You can read about them here. Well this is one that decided to hibernate and has just emerged.
Waiting for wings to unfold.
Ready to fly off outside.
I'm sure we will get a few more later in the year!
See you soon,
