Two ducks were preening in the sunshine
Only a few of these had fully opened before but now the whole plant was covered
Leaves were lit up by sunlight
An idea of scale - tiny tulips in front of primroses
A closer look at the tiny blue flowers
New growth in the prairie beds
Looking up inside the orange fritillaria that looked like a bunch of carrots on my last trip but has now opened
The little pink bells - I found a way round to the back of this plant and managed to get a few better photos today.
Acer flowers - so tiny and delicate
Different shaped leaves on another tree. Perhaps I need a book of trees - I might manage to identify some of them then.
Tree peony - the leaves are uncurling and the flower buds are shooting up in the middle
Bright splash of colour among the bluebells and long grass . . .
Snakes head fritillary
Back to the flower beds. for even more colour
Suddenly the heavens opened and for a moment white stuff fell like bobbles of polystrene before turning quickly to rain. Umbrella up, I took a couple more photos before heading home.
Flamboyant orange and red
Young ferns like decorative snail shells
Rain drop ripples filled the pond
Thank you very much for joining me
