Wild in a Country Town
As it was such a lovely sunny day on Sunday when we had our trip to the lakes in the gardens of a nearby town I took more photos than I had room for on my previous post so I thought I would share some more.
The Mute Swans really did look serene and beautiful in the sunshine.
It may be a humble, and I think, often overlooked little flower but to me the Daisy (Bellis perennis) summons up childhood days of endless school holidays with tea on the lawn and little fingers clumsily making Daisy chains.
In the wild area of the town gardens we visited I saw Cowslips (Primula veris).
My very favourite wild flower, the Primrose (Primula vulgaris)
And the lovely golden Marsh Marigolds or King Cups (Caltha palustris), another childhood favourite, growing by the fishing lakes.
Although not really 'wild' flowers these Drumstick Primroses (Primula denticulata) looked lovely growing among the grass in the wild area.
I also spotted this Grey Squirrel high in a tree.
These feral Pigeons were high in another tree.
Back past the lakes.
A lovely afternoon out in the sunshine and back home for a meal and a glass of wine....or two!
