After a quick trip to London for work I came back to rain, rain and yes you guessed it even more rain, April is going out with more than a few showers. Mind you they do pass over quite quickly with dramatic effect.
Miel continues to amuse us all with her antics, she has discovered the storage boxes in the stables and thinks they are great to play hide and seek in.
She has also claimed her new favourite place to sit… our playstation box her favourite programme is The Good Wife.
I made a new friend when i popped down to pick up the mail from the post box, i offered him some factor 50 but he declined.
The one thing about all the rain and sun, it has made our garden grow like crazy, we have a lovely show of irises at the moment, the flower heads are huge and they smell divine.
All the wild flowers have attracted swarms of beautiful butterflies, i have never seen so many.
They are attracted to the array of bright colourful flowers, i do love the spring its such a fabulous season, full of promise for what lies ahead the rest of the year.
The Cow Parsley is growing knee high and the buttercups are washing the fields with a yellow haze.
The trees have all lost their blossoms now, being replaced with tiny fruits which will swell and offer up lots of tasty treats later in the summer. The wild fig trees are bursting with fruit.
What a fabulous week and what a fabulous place we live in. Lets see what May brings us.
Happy Mayday everyone.
