I first saw this shrub in the grounds of Alnwick Castle in Northumberland and thought how lovely it was. I hope you agree. If you’d like to join with Photo of the Day check out Cee’s post.
I noticed this pretty little buttercup-like flower in the hedgerow during my dog walk early the other morning. The wild flowers are just beginning to bloom, along with the lovely blackthorn flowers.

Now we’re all restricted with relation to the time we spend outside, I thought I’d look back at previous outings. This was a particularly pleasant day last November, one of the few we had over the winter.
You have to take advantage when the opportunity arises. Spending time in nature is one of my favourite things.
And just for fun, here are some flowers I hope will brighten your day.
After months of storms it was lovely to watch the birds enjoying some long awaited sunshine, especially as we’re confined to quarters at the moment.
The blue tits are nesting in the bird house and enjoying the cherry blossom.
Maybe the robins are nesting nearby too, although I haven’t seen any evidence of it, except that they’re around a lot, which is lovely.
I’ve haven’t noticed these little dunnocks before, they flit about so quickly it took patience and a hefty dose of luck to capture them standing still.
