I bought a Japanese Anemone, Wild Swan. Lovely name, lovely plant.
This afternoon Tilly and I went for a beach walk, accompanied by my eldest grandson, who is always good company on a walk! The lane leading up to the car park is lined on either side, for about quarter of a mile, with sweet cicely. It creates a profusion of flowers and, here, next to the white of the May blossom, they are a frothy, delicious creamy colour.
A walk with a boy has to involve climbing a tree. He was up this beech tree in a matter of seconds,
and then down again!
The tide was a long way out today, exposing all the rocks, and rock pools. Lots to see in those!
We walked round the headland on to the other beach. There's a multitude of different types of rock along this beach. We were looking for fossils in the rocks. We didn't find anything specific but there were some interesting rock forms.
