Friday has come around so quickly this week. I've been busy pottering about clearing and decluttering. One bag went out for Age UK yesterday and two boxes of old mugs, glasses, cutlery and dishes are ready to take to the Cats Protection shop soon.
We took an afternoon out of looking after an elderly, twenty one year old cat who needs lots of attention and visited Shugborough Hall (see my previous post).
It has been wonderful to actually get washing completely dry outside and the grass has been cut too.
I also grabbed my camera and went out into the garden where I found lots of new blooms and buds to admire.
Below are five things I spotted.
1. Blossom on the Victoria plum tree at the top of the garden
2. Buds on the Peony in the front garden, sadly the peony in the back garden didn't survive the winter and extra damp soil from last summer's floods.
3. Flowers on the Amelanchier (Snowy Mespilus)Tree. It will soon be a mass of white. The birds love the berries in autumn.
4. Little pale Violet flowers all over, in nooks and crannies, on paths, under hedges, in the pebbles around the greenhouse where we stand the pot plants and in the pots themselves with whatever else is in them.
5. Flowers on the Bridal Wreath (Spirea Arguta) we have one in the front garden and one in the back garden.
