abbots pool










Gosh another scorcher of a day... {sorry to those who aren't experiencing this unusually hot weather this April is giving us}.
Boys went to Lucy's birthday party this morning, Dan & I painted the landing floor {yes we always do DIY on the hottest days... doh!}.
At lunchtime we went to Abbots Pool for a little picnic and a ride of the bikes.
I love Abbots pool for it's stunning tranquility.  Charlie & Ru spotted wild flowers in the hedgerows, wild strawberry's, celendines, devils' tongue ferns and cow parsley almost in flower {a whole month early!}.
At the pool we watch dogs bathe, ducks chasing each other, older children paddle in the shallower pools, people fish.
I couldn't stop taking pictures of the newly emerged leaves... such amazing greens.

Lovely..

  2. How delightful, although i have one child who still can't resist falling into any puddle, lake, pool, reflection pond - honestly, she's nearly 10 & always in the water. Love Posie
