The lovely weather continues. N and I went for a walk at the loch this morning.
Hazy but warm.
Ooooh, catkins. Willow I think.
Blackthorn blossom. We don't have many blackthron bushes around here, mostly it's hawthorn. In the Spring it's easy to tell them apart - blackthorn has flowers before leaves, hawthorn has leaves before flowers.
Looking up and leaves are just starting to unfurl above.
A distant umbellifer skeleton.
N and I.
We took the scooter. Very little scooting but much pushing was done.
Now back home...
...Mr Sparrow here has chosen to build a nest under the barge board right above the back door. Little bits of nesting material and sparrow poo are now falling onto the doorstep. None of us has been "christened" yet, but give it time.
I'm still enjoying the snake's head fritillaries, this time photographed from underneath, slightly blurry as there was a bit of a breeze.
A tulip. In March!
Yesterday we went to a little Easter event at N's old toddler group.
En route we passed this tree, I like how the new leaves on the lower branches are glowing green in the morning sun.
At the do N got his face painted. He always picks Spiderman and this time he got a bonus spiderman hand too.
I believe the fine weather is to last till the weekend when "normality" (colder, cloudier, wetter!) is set to resume. Our Easter school holidays start this weekend...
