Signs of spring :)


Hi guys,
I’ve been very busy today. We took the family to Bulkeley Hill here in Cheshire and what a beautiful place. The dappled sunshine shone onto the sandstone trail and we even managed to do some geocaching ( we’re a bit geocaching mad right now) We even scaled a vertical hill and I have the bruises to prove it lol.

Just got back and had a wander in the garden, only to find signs of spring all over my garden. The apple blossom is on its way as there are tiny leaf buds on the apple tree and the nature pond is teeming with life now.

Hope everyone is enjoying the early days of spring? :)

Bulkeley Hill

Don’t look down! Still can’t believe I scrambled up here in one piece lol.

A cave in the sunshine.

My verve tulip and primrose are blooming :)

The nature pond :)

The pond in a pot. This has oxygenators, watercress, an iris and a Carex grassy marginal in it. I’m hoping to attract some insects.

Hi snoop Geocaching is a hobby that involves people searching for hidden and secret caches. It's all over the world and we love it. It keeps us out in the fresh air and gets us fit climbing all sorts lol. Last week I climbed a tree and I'm 36 lol. :)

Hi Scotkat, it certainly keeps us fit lol. The last cache took 3 hours to find because the signal kept dropping up there. My 12 and 9 year old sons love it when I join in. Last week they had to help me climb down from a tree lol.
