So off to West Dean Gardens,.. where I joined as a Garden Member.
Loads of buttercups..
and the Wisteria is just starting to flower.. a bit more sunshine and warmth and it will look stunning..
It started to rain so we all took shelter for a bit..
and then headed out again..
Laburnum starting to flower..
The sheep have been shorn...
and a family of 11 Mallard ducklings..
Record shots only of a Grey Wagtail
and more record shots - Red Legged Partidge..!! x 2
Then headed off in the rain... stopped at Petworth Park which was on my way home..
for a scone for lunch... very tasty..
The scent from these azealeas was wonderful.. and
Mr Ponders approved..
Good to get out despite the rain...... roll on some sunshine please :D .
