After the last few weeks of flowers blooming and plants…doing whatever plants do, it’s all a bit…samey.
So I thought I’d head out to our local woodland park and see how that was growing.
I’m so glad I went, it was a welcomed retreat from everything.
If I could play you the sounds of the birds singing, animals rustling in the fallen leaves and the gentle gusts of wind as they blew through the trees, I would. It was heavenly to just step away from everything, even knowing I was still in town, it felt like I was miles away.
The lake / pond or big puddle is home to a variety of plants and wildlife, all doing their ‘whoop whoop Winter is over’ happy dance.
The blossom trees looked gorgeous, but I was distracted from their blooming beauty by this….
The most aggressive swan EVER!
Seriously, the white feathered bird of doom was possessed!
It was chasing some poor Canadian goose around, squeaking and squalling at it whilst trying to tear out its tail feathers. I wasn’t sure if I should call the RSPB and let them know there was a narky swan being all PMT aggressive!
Anyway, after leaving the birds to fight it out I went and continued my walk.
There were signs of Spring everywhere.
The fairies were making their new homes.
Roots growing the wrong way.
Sidney the squirrel trying to find his nuts *snigger*.
You could see where the recent rain hasn’t been able to drain away. Made for some lovely reflections, just hope it doesn’t damage any tree roots beyond repair.
The daffodils were continuing their silent yet persistent attempt at world domination.
Red berries clung on, whilst looking berrilicious!
Is it a babbling brook or a streaming stream?! Either way, it looked rather lovely winding its way around the park.
The beauty and stillness of the park quietly screamed “Come sit a while”.
The cherry blossoms hung in glorious displays of pinks and white.
Whilst the buds showed that Spring is definitely here and there will more change to come.
