Four simple things that have made me smile this week...........
1. Greylag geese with their goslings by the lakeside at Trentham Gardens, they were so protective of their little ones. I assume it is dad standing protectively whilst mum hovers over her little ones attentively, it could, of course, be the other way round. Either way it was a delightful scene.
2. Spring Flowers in the Italian Gardens and along the terrace at Trentham Gardens - I'm not usually particularly enamoured with orange flowers leaning more towards pinks, blues and lavenders or pure white flowers but somehow these tulips were so bright and cheerful in the sunlight I thought they looked stunning.
3. A White Peacock at Wingfield Manor - as we stood waiting at the farm gate for our guides (see my last post) I heard a cry and said to Paul - 'that sounds like a peacock!' When we got into the ruins there it was, I hadn't expected it to be white though.
4. Hedgerow Blossom. I think this is Blackthorn or perhaps May blossom - of the saying 'Ne'er cast a clout 'till May is out' - well the blossom is out but after a sunny weekend last week, once again it is cold and wet, the heating has been turned up and the jumpers are back on. The gardens need the rain but I could do without it! Still these photos remind me of how happy we were to be out and about walking in warm sunshine last weekend.
