All on a Spring walk

Now, where did you two pop up from?
Ah, yes – meet Buttons and Bandit, who like nothing better than to explore the surrounding countryside so that they can come back and tell children all about the things they have seen.
They are sitting on the ‘magic’ tree (or ‘fairy tree’) which lies outside the village – an ancient walnut tree with all manner of hollow places and interesting nooks and crannies. Children love to visit it to see what the ‘fairies’ have left behind. Buttons and Bandit found a newly planted clematis, a small rose and the remains of some fat balls, hung from the branches for the birds to enjoy.
Back home, the spring flowers are wonderful this year – all that rain over the winter?

The Common is already lush with grass, leaves on the trees and the view as lovely as ever.IMG_1194 But I must get out with my camera again, as Spring is racing forward like an express train and these photos are already out of date.

Wherever you are, get out there and enjoy your own Spring walk – and take a camera. You’ll be amazed to discover how much there is to snap!

About apthomas

I love books, reading, writing, baking, chocolate, painting, sewing, people and fairtrade - not necessarily in that order. I am a lazy gardener - who loves the garden, and a lazy housewife who likes the place to be warm and welcoming. I live in beautiful Somerset. I am enslaved by Sherpa-the-cat. Saturday mornings find me 'playing shop' in the Honey Pot - a second hand bookshop, run from my garage, where along with the books you'll find fun, friendship and refreshments - all in a good cause.
