Another visit from Bunny

Our children were delighted to have another visit from Islay the flat coated retriever and her baby Bunny today. Everyone was amazed at how much Bunny has grown in just over 2 weeks. Her eyes are open and they are blue and now she can almost walk but she is still quite wobbly. She even has a little tooth. We took turns to hold her and stroke her very gently and learned that we had to be calm and quiet around her so as not to frighten her.

Spring flowers on the way to school

Our pre-schoolers went on a visit to school this morning and, on the way, we noticed some more wildflowers. This time we found white, yellow, purple and pink ones. We’ve made a stab at naming them, happy to accept corrections however 😊

Spring flowers in the woods

Now that spring is really here we have been noticing changes in the woods. Spring flowers are starting to appear and here are some that we noticed today. We also were very interested in the different kinds of moss we could see, some was fluffy, some spiky, some soft and some jaggy. There were so many different kinds of green too! We collected some leaves, lots of different shapes and sizes and sorted the flowers into colours. We found white wood sorrel and bluebells, purple bluebells and violets and blue bluebells. We also some some bracken starting to grow – it was curled up in a roll and it was fluffy to touch.

Getting our garden ready

We spent some time this morning getting our garden ready for planting. We tidied up the weeds (and decided that weeds are just plants growing in the wrong places) and dug up our flower beds ready to plant. We are going to plant some vegetables, we think carrots, pumpkins, potatoes and yummy cabbage would be good and also some flowers, maybe some rainbow roses and sunflowers!
