I love this time of year, it is my favourite and I don't want it to end. The woods are just alive with plants, flowers, shoots, colour. I had to stop and stare at all this beauty; buttercups, bluebells and wild garlic, in fact this should be called stop, stare and smell.
My Jack Russell has his own agenda and often drags me on a walk I don't enjoy in order to spend hours in a horrible field which must be full of disgusting dog smells. On the way back we pass this garden and it always makes me stop and stare, mostly because of the gaudy Christmas baubles used as eyes for the animals! These pictures do not do them justice.
