Blossom time

Hello! Happy May Day to you. I’d love to be able to say that it’s a beautiful sunny day here but unfortunately it’s cold, wet and dreary. So I have the heating on, a mug of hot tea and am curled up on the sofa writing this post and filling it with pretty Spring pictures.

I have a real love of blossoms of all types. There so incredibly pretty, from a distance they almost look like twigs topped with candy floss or marshmallows. 

Here’s some beautiful blossom I pictured the other day when the sun was shining in our very own Oxton Village.


Yesterday we popped to Chester zoo for a couple of hours. We were very lucky with the weather and I snapped these..


Stunning against that blue sky aren’t they?

A couple of weeks ago I took our eldest and our youngest over to Sefton Park to see the blossoms and to fulfill a dream of the eldest. 


She too loves blossoms, and would love to live in Japan where they are famous. At this time of year they celebrate the beauty of spring flowers by picnicking under the blossom trees. So that’s what we did, we had our own little Haname under the blossoms, by the lake in the middle of Sefton park. It was really lovely. We sat opposite this pretty bandstand.


And this was above our blanket..


Gorgeous hey? It’s a shame they don’t last longer. After our picnic, we explored the rest of the park.


There was still an abundance of daffs on display. I love how the cloud is kind of heart shaped and just resting on the top of the hill.


Further round, we came to the fairy glen where there’s these stepping stones across the water. It felt like we were in a faraway place, somewhere completely magical. We made a little friend, he took a monkey nut right from my hand.


He was so tame and let us get really close.

The magnolias were in full bloom, so beautiful.


On our way back to the car, we stopped off in the palm house. It’s amazing in there, so tropical. You can even get married in here.


The colours were so vibrant. This one looks like a bottle brush. Right in the centre of the house is this spiral staircase. I just wanted to climb it, of course I couldn’t.


Well that’s all for today from me, I’m off to do a bit of housework, a little bit of hooky and prepare a fabulous roast for my lot. Happy bank holiday weekend xx

    Stunning photos – they give me hope that it really is spring as the weather has been a little peculiar (thunder and hail at the same time!) Hope you have a good bank holiday.
