Taking a walk

I have been with out my car this week, so I've been using Shank's pony to get about! 
This morning I had an appointment at the doctors  for my regular blood test and walked the 'scenic route' there, which involved taking a short cut through our local  (ancient) grave yard.  As I'd already walked through there earlier in the week I remembered to take my camera with me.....


Aren't the snowdrops and crocuses amazing?
Then I spotted the bluebells in another area getting ready for their show too...

The modern extension to the grave yard was opened a couple of years ago
The powers that be (local council, not 'im upstairs) have added a pond and seating near the entrance over looking the fields and farmland
another view of the pond and seating.  The doctors surgery medical centre is the building in the background. 
I'm really not being morbid, but my family have their instructions - this is where my place of rest will be, but I'm more than happy to enjoy the peace and views for a good many years yet!

We're off to Nottingham tommorrow to help our daughter with some decorating, so I'll post again with a few bargains on Sunday.

Have a great weekend!


Oh!  Nearly forgot, I'm astounded to see another two followers bringing the total up to 51.
Thank you so much for joining me here, and welcome.  I really appreciate your support :o)

I love the blue bells, snow drops and crocus when they push their way through for spring in the UK. They are stunning!

I thought I was already following you - don't know what happened there.
