It really has felt like spring here in Devon. In Brixham we've had almost two weeks without rain and mostly warm sunny days. It has felt like a breath of fresh air after our terrible storms and it's giving everyone a chance to dry out.
For an hour or so last Sunday I managed to get out into the garden with the macro lens, it was such a beautiful day and this is what I captured.
Daisys are one of my favourite flowers and I love to see a lawn covered in them, although I'm sure those wishing for a perfect green lawn would not agree!
A beautiful daisy bud
I'm not sure what this insect is, perhaps some sort of hoverfly?
Dandelions are not my most loved plants but the Goldfinches love to feed on the seed heads so I try to leave a few about
Clematis Montana has come back to life and will soon be in flower-I can't wait
I assume this Ladybird is just resting on the snail shell, rather than eating some of the slime?
It's been so mild the pelargoniums have stayed in flower in the greenhouse
I spotted this Ladybird in the grass so lay down and caught it on camera doing Ladybird things
Just getting ready to open its shell
..........and we have lift off!
A selection of flowers from the garden, although crouching down to get these shots I did have very wet knees
I'm sorry that I have not been posting regularly over the last few weeks. Other things have taken up my time, including decorating two rooms (which has made me incredibly tired), work and all the ususal stuff that gets in the way of the pleasurable things in our lives. I have missed commenting on quite a few posts recently, but I have been visiting briefly to check on what you have all been up to.
This weekend we are off to Bournmouth International Centre to see the Four Tops and The Temptations in concert, with The Platters and Freda Payne as special guests. It'll be great and we are so looking forward to it.
I hope you are all looking forward to a nice weekend whatever you are doing and that I shall get back to a regular blog land service soon
Bye for now
