It has been a fabulous day today, a little breezy but sunshine all the way. It always lifts my spirits when the sun shines.
We had a little meander in one of our local parks today and I thought you might like to come with us.
We have to go through a delightful grove to start with, a tunnel into another world.
Not a soul about, just us. Can you hear the birds singing all around you? We could.
There are many varieties of trees here and this is just a small selection of them. This has to be one of my favourite pictures, it reminds me of a Japanese garden.
Foxgloves are flowering already
As are the azaleas.
The patterns made by the ivy are stunning.
Hazel is growing fast.
So lush and green
A bride's bouquet perhaps? They smelt very nice.
All the geraniums or cranesbill are flowering now.
Various colours of them around the park today.
To add to the colour I thought I'd show you current progress on my freeform wrap. I've been trying to find a blog post I thought I had done last year when I made the first part but no success. The idea was to freeform curls of fleece and see what happened.
I wore the first part at Woolfest last year and then added a wee bit to it before wonderwool.
I've been adding more today.
The idea is to carry on and see how big it gets, I'd like it cloak length but realistically I couldn't wear it.
It already weighs quite a bit. What do you think?
