Back on Track

We haven't seen this chap for a while.
But he was back again today.
Just like me!
I haven't been blogging for a while or even visiting any of my friends here.
But that will change.
We have been having some changes here too.
I showed you the Daffodils that were about to flower.
Well here they are flowering.
It seems as though they've been this way for weeks now.
They just stay the same.

The trees are coming into their own glory now.
This is a view that greets us from our front door.

These Wood Anemones can be seen growing wild all over the place,
but these particular ones are underneath one of the shrubs in the garden.

Here is a pink one.

There are even some garden flowers showing themselves now,
or just about to,
like this Peony.

I don't know the name of this flower.

Or this one.

This is a Dicentra growing underneath one of our windows.

Mike put the hammock up a few weeks ago when the weather turned nice.
But the first time I tried it the rope gave way!
Luckily it was low to the ground.
It's still awaiting repair, otherwise I think I would have been making use of it!
We have had some lovely weather at times.

The nights are drawing out.
Tonight when we walked the hounds (at 22.30), the sky was still blue above us,
a star was twinkling,
and a bird was calling.
