I've been tardy at blogging this week for one reason or another, mostly due to gardening, knitting and a good book, so this post is a sort of mishmash of things that have happened since my last post plus photos from the garden.
Inside the house some lovely blue iris reduced to 89p - I couldn't leave them behind in the shop as I love blue iris.
In the garden the yellow flag iris are blooming by the pond.
The bees are loving the chive flowers - I can spot two in this photo but I counted five when I was taking it.
The first strawberry on the plants I bought from Aldi a few weeks ago and wondered if they would produce fruit!
Chloe and Max are enjoying the garden at the moment; they love to roll around on the path rather than the grass I wonder why?
I'm sure they wouldn't have looked quite so relaxed if they had realised that there was a visitor to the garden lurking in the undergrowth by the pond!
We've managed two walks out over the last few days. We had a lovely walk under the trees at Dimmingsdale
We walked in sunshine and showers admiring the reflections in the stream
Yesterday we walked around the lake at Trentham where we saw the greylag geese with their goslings.
I'm off to Stratford-on-Avon for a couple of days later this week. We are going, with friends from Nottingham, to see a play at the newly refurbished Shakespeare Theatre ( it seems ages since I booked the tickets) and visiting a National Trust property on the way home the next day. I'll let you know all about our visit in my next post.
