Then I heard a cuckoo. Really loudly and clearly. Fantastic. It made me smile.
This is my walk to school - yes, I walked today. I wasn't grumpy!
It was misty, but the sun was burning through.
Cow parsley and bluebells in abundance.
A big fat caterpillar. Although my phone camera thinks the leaves below are the interesting part of the photo! :(
Met by the robin as I returned home. I think it's the sunflower seeds, not me, that he loves. But he's always enthusiastic to see me.
By lunchtime the mist had burnt away and it was a wonderfully sunny for the rest of the day.
I'd never seen the pheasant and crow feeding together before - one at each tray.
The pheasants red seemed to glisten in the sunshine.
And my apple tree, so heavy with blossom
- photo shamelessly similar to Lucy's here, when I was so jealous she had seen the sun.
Today it was literally alive with bees, working away, under the intense blue sky. It's a shame you can't hear the noise.
Every time I walked by, I stopped to listen - just fantastic.
They didn't stop until after 7pm.
Let's hope tomorrow and the weekend are similar.
