The weather has been rather lovely this weekend and we spent some time in the sadly neglected garden. I did a bit of weeding in the front garden and some of the grass has been cut but half of it is still too wet to work on. There is such a lot to do and we are still chopping and bagging up the last branches of the tree that was taken down at the front of the house a few weeks ago. More from the garden in a later post.
We have managed a couple of trips out locally in the last couple of days so below are some photos I took whilst out and about.
We had a walk at Froghall Wharf down the lane and through the woods.
It was wet and muddy underfoot, thank goodness we had wellies on
Just look at all that wild garlic, this wood if full of it and the smell when it is in flower is amazing.
We then walked along the canal towards the steam railway
and went onto the platform of the Kingsley and Froghall station.
We didn't see a steam train as we were there about 11a.m. and it wasn't due in from Cheddleton until after midday.
We walked across the line to look at the new picnic area and small nature reserve being created at the station.
It was lovely to see so many wildflowers and shrubs as we walked.
The next day we went to Ashbourne in Derbyshire and had a wander around. Above are just a few photos I took in the centre in the little lanes around the Market Place.
