I hope you're all enjoying your weekend wherever you are - it's certainly been a glorious weekend here. It's that wonderful time of the year when new life is bursting out all over the place - we've had the most amazing weather so far, the garden is full of promise and the birds and bees are busy doing what they always do ...

no crinolines now though!
We live in the Caretaker's Cottage in the grounds of a big house which is now used as office space, so out of office hours it is a quiet haven for wildlife (and for us), although it's in the midst of a large housing estate. We enjoy watching all kinds of birds, as well as squirrels, hedgehogs, foxes, bats, snakes, frogs and toads, insects, field mice - we've even had the odd horse wandering through and a muntjac deer one time!
Here's a picture taken by my DH - I've blogged it before, but it's worth showing again I think. The photo quality isn't great, but what were the chances of catching this moment on camera?! Click on the picture to enlarge it, so that you can look really closely ...

It really is a lovely place to live, and hard to believe that we're only five minutes away from a shopping centre and everything else we need - the best of both worlds :o)
Thanks for popping in today, see you again soon
