It's been a gorgeously warm day today with wall to wall blue sky and sun, and if you got out of the wind, it was gloriously warm too.

I had to go shopping today with my neighbour, but I still managed to take a couple of photos of Pippin snoozing away on his cushion.


Why he wasn't sleeping outside in the sun is beyond me...........


Then after I'd been out, having gone at a different time than normal - never again!!!!!! Between the hours of 2 and 3pm is horrendous - all the old people with their lack of knowledge of how to push a trolley or where any food is, or where they'd left their friend, even why were they there was one question an old man asked me!!!! Then luckily his carer came along and helped him away to choose something for tea!!! Oh I dread that kind of thing happening to me - I'll pay for a hitman I think!!!

Then I came home and the sun was just at that height which accentuated the blossom - so I just had to take some photos didn't I?





I do so love this time of year - by looking upwards and seeing these gorgeous blooms, I can forget that the rest of the garden is in dire need of being stripped!!!

While I was sitting down thoroughly enjoying my time in the warmth of the sun and playing with Pippin.............


He noticed a butterfly flapping away in amongst the leaves............


Then just as he was about to pounce - it flew away and I tried to follow it with my camera but noticed one of my wood pigeons - Boo or Choo - who've been here for a couple of years..............



Now he/she was keeping an eye out for a new nest.......

I also saw that the seagulls who have claimed my roof as theirs.... had thrown out some rubbish from last year's nest!!!!!!!!



I think I'll leave this until I cut the grass, just in case another bird wants it for their nest.

I do have a small cherry tree in a pot, it's the fluffy one and I hope to replant it into the garden next year - I'm keeping it in the pot for this year.


Well that's about all for now - hope you've enjoyed my few pictures of today.
