However, shopping done I felt hungry.. so very impromptu I headed off to Nymans Gardens in the drizzle.
It was still damp when I got there, but despite the weather.. the car park was full to overflowing.. luckily I got a space.
Some of the magnolias are still in bloom..
Lots of Forget-me-nots..
and a nice scone for lunch... Mr. Ponders would have approved.. had he been with me today... oooops
This really has been a great year for tulips... beautiful colours to brighten up anyone's day!!
This song thrush was gathering worms and wouldn't stop to pose.. I think feeding young had, quite rightly, the priority!!
Rhododendrons in full bloom.
Right at the top of the picture are the 2 nesting Great Crested Grebes.. records shots only today..
