Now I remember how to get all the photos in one entry.
If you click on a picture it will enlarge it.
This picture is especially for our grandson.
Who yesterday had a tumble and broke his arm.
Get well soon Aidan.
Remember the old mantra for memorising the colours of the rainbow,
Richard of York gave battle in vain.
Here is my rainbow of flowers and a picture of the birds nesting box,
which has been taken over by bee's.
You will have to look at the second batch of photos, to see the bee's and more of the rainbow.
I am not skilled enough to enter them all on this post.

It is so sunny and hot we decided that a walk by the river would be cooling.
We were not alone as many dog lovers take their pets down to cool off.
These pictures show other reasons to enjoy the walk.
A Mallard taking in the sun.
A tree fallen, which has received a helping hand to thrive in The Nettles.
'The Nettles' nature reserve, which has a team of craft's people who make the thickets
and voluntees who help to keep the area clear of wind strewn rubbish.
May I thank MissM for alerting me to my mistake in naming this area Lollycocks field.
A Moorhen, starting to build her nest.
There a plenty of fish in the river which shows good water quality.
We did see a 12 inch trout,although most other visible fish were no biger
than 6 or 7 inches.

At Christmas we received membership to the National Trust as a gift from Dancin' Fool, In The Pink.
Thank you Dancin' and today we visited Belton House and gardens.
The first picture is of the first Earl Brownlow's Cript, outside the Norman church in the grounds of Belton House.
The second is the Hot House. What a conservatory it is.
It was a wonderful day. People and children were enjoying the many pleasures available to them, as were we.
It is too large to take in all that is on offer in one go, so we plan a return visit soon.
