Happy Easter

I took my first cup of tea out into the garden, this morning.  The sky was clear and the most beautiful shade of blue.  The sun was shining brightly but not yet providing much warmth so I wrapped my dressing gown quite tightly around me.

I carefully picked my way down the narrow path, towards my viburnum, to inhale its pretty fragrance.  Its tiny creamy buds are all popping open to form large floral pompoms.  It really is looking quite stunning.

I forget whether it was the tiny flashes of colour within its boughs or the barely audible cheeping that first caught my attention ...

Have a truly magical Easter weekend, my lovely friends.


PS.  No chicks were harmed during this photo shoot (though blue chick did need a bit of a lie down - he's not so great with heights).
