Spring sunshine

It was a rather cold and grey February in our corner of the world, so when the sun appeared to be in danger of breaking out today we all got ridiculously over-excited. Sandwiches were made, sausage rolls cooked and the picnic hamper was unearthed. The first picnic of the year! We headed out to Sheffield Park Gardens, one of our favourite spots. We are not totally mad; we ate the picnic in the car before enjoying our walk.

It is a very picturesque place that is based around a series of lakes.

No sign of spring leaves just yet!

Lots of snowdrops though.

The light was amazing; a real tonic after the recent gloom.

DS took this one!
Up tails all!
