Glorious sunny days two weekends running! What is the British weather coming to? It was too good to miss so we headed out for a walk through the woods. One of my favourite parts of these woods is the sunlight dancing on the brook as it babbles along.
Not much to see yet in the way of plant growth but I was thrilled to find a small patch of scarlet elf cup fungus.
There were lots of lesser celandine too. I'm so looking forward to the return of all the other woodland flowers.
The birds were in full song and fluttering about. We saw lots of nuthatch taking advantage of the seed stations and could hear their distinctive call all through our walk - if you click on the link, you can listen to an audio clip.
Also lots of great tits, coal tits, blue tits and robins. All of them are very common in this area.
Oh, and one not so common but very happy crocodile!
In other news, I thought I'd share the progress of my ripple blanket. It's one of those projects just to pick up now and again so that I always have some crochet to do, so it's slow and steady. I've completed one row of each of my colours and have just started the repeats.
Of course, there's also the weekly kirigami update. Inevitably there was a St Patrick's themed design but my favourite was the one at top left.
Only four working days to Easter but also to having a couple of weeks leave. I can't wait! I have a feeling these four days will drag - fingers crossed they don't! x
