Well...it has rained and rained and i have not been at the allotment much. The ever increasing pressure of planting is upon me so we took a little trip to the garden centre,,yay ! Cabbages,purplesprouting broccoli,Brussels sprouts,lettuce,beets,and herbs were bought and then we headed to the aquarium next door to ogle and stand in wonder at the incredible beauty and other worldliness of the marine tanks. I always feel in awe of the colours and patterns and inspired .. The kids love it too and also the baba !

I had never seen ducks like these before now . They are called Indian Runners and they are funny. The source of many a cartoon duck I imagine. I love them!
Another weekend ramble in the woods......

Well, it has been very, very wet around here these past 3weeks,the talk of a drought because of our dry winter has now gone out of the window ...as often happens here we do have a lot of rain.. particularly when we think it should be warm and dry..our problem is we are not so good at collecting it and extremely wasteful ! Anyway our Wednesdays have been a wash out and so very muddy but we have still ventured out all except one day! I forgot my camera so will not yet be able to show the full extent of muddiness that we endured..another time . These are pictures of our regular walk a couple of weeks ago to try and see deer that are in a sanctuary and are supposed to be directly descended from Henry VIII,s own herd . Can you see them there in the distance? We often don,t see them as the children are so noisy they frighten them away !
We were there yesterday and since last week all the leaves are out. The trees must be loving the rain.
Playing "house" with finds from a tip of wood !
