Hi everyone, the weather picked up last week, well, slightly warmer and a few outbreaks of sun at least!
We took the opportunity to get out and about locally.
Fletcher Moss is a favourite of ours and not far from home.
The show of Spring flowers has begun
There was less on show at The Carrs when we took a walk before doing our shopping last week.
I was quite excited to see the Hawthorn leaves forming shoots.....
We watched a tree creeper go up this tree but my phone camera missed it - I'll get hubby to check whether he got it and try to show you next week
Can you see a Rhino here is it only me?
Today we took ourselves off to Lyme Park
Only a few photos here - there will be more next week
The geese were being really noisy.
Afterwards we went to a nearby garden centre where we had free coffee each and a cake(of course) We had had light lunch so I allowed myself a whole shortcake swirl - I haven't had one of these for years and it...was...delicious!
I am joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth at The Altered Book Lover for T Stands for Tuesday with a smiling hubby and our coffee and cakes(his favourite carrot cake)
Hi Chris, I do so love seeing a field of crocuses in flower, they are just gorgeous aren't they. I also love carrot cake so I can see how your DH is smiling! Happy T Day! Elle/EOTC xx
Hi Chris, so glad you took us along on your walk. wow such gorgeous spring blooms already-loved seeing all those flowers. your treats look yummy
Happy T hugs from the lake
what fabulous photos of the spring flowers, seems like winter is finally on the way..
So exciting to see spring flowers! We're having another winter storm warning for tonight. :)
You have spring. Wahoo. Those blooms look so pretty. And what great places to walk. I don't get sick of seeing these photos Chris. Your afternoon treat looks yummy too. I hope you had a wonderful T day Chris, and that you get to enjoy those flowers some more too. Hugs-Erika
With 4 or so inches of snow today, your garden photos are a welcome sight. I don't think I've ever seen so many crocus. I saw the rhino! Your cakes look so good, too. Happy T Day
Beautiful shots of spring emerging! The crocuses are my favorite along with the tree fungus. Yum, carrot cake sounds like a yummy pick but your cake looks pretty as well.
Happy Tea Day,
Carrot cake is my favorite, too. I bet it went well with his coffee. I've never heard of shortcake swirl, but it looks decadent.
I really enjoyed your walk around Fletcher Moss. Spring really HAS taken off in your world. Such pretty spring flowers, too.
Thanks for sharing your walks, the loud geese I couldn't hear, and your cakes and coffee with us for T this Tuesday, dear Chris.
Hi Chris! Wish I could take walks where you do. Happy T Day.
Oh, so lovely!!! We have -6C/21F and ... brrr.
Our Hubbies are always so nice to let us take pics of them to blog, huh? x
Such a lovely park! I went to a park yesterday myself and saw so many spring daffodils :) I love your photos. Happy meteorological spring! and happy T Day
These photos are just outstanding. I love the last one best. Have a great day today.
