Spring photos and Koi Carp
The sun is shining brightly
The trees are clothed in green
The beautiful flowers of springtime
On every side are seen............
Spring! Isn't it the most beautiful time of the year after such a long driech winter?
My garden is bursting its little heart showing off all its blossoms and flowers.
There are just my poppies to open up and then it will be complete!
In Julia's journal she mentioned seering the bottom of the stems of poppies to make them last a week. I shall be trying that one out soon. Hope it works as I just need to captivate them for a little longer than a day or so.
We took a run out to a place called Singleton, about five miles from Blackpool, to buy some baby fish for Bryan's pond.
I hope to be able to place some photos of them on here. The sky was grey today when I took them so the light isn't as good as it could be but you can get a glimpse of them.
These 'littlies' have fair cheered our jumbo Koi up. They are swimming around and playing catch up with them as well as competing for their food too. The jumbos had become quite complacent and presumed the food would be there at their leisure. Not with these hungry little shiny critters.
It's great to see their appetites reviving after their long winter fast.
I hope you enjoy the photos.
PS. I forgot to draw your attention to the deer in the gap in the woodland on a couple photos.
