It's that time of the year when the gardens look glorious. And the town is transformed into a beauty, with blossom clouds of different pastel shades.
Right now it's the cherry trees, plums and magnolia, with apple blossom appearing later in spring.
Last week I took a lot of photos of the flowers and blossom.
Two butterflies were playing with each other in the garden, doing a flirty courting dance. It was such a beautiful sight. I took a lot of photos, but haven't managed to catch both of them on camera at the same time.
Magnolia, not far from Eddie's school.
Taking Eddie to school, I walked afterwards to St Mary's church. It was a bright morning, and the sun was directly above the church.
On Thursday it was Sasha's night away from home, so Eddie and I hopped on the bus to Oxford after school. Sasha had a good time in his respite centre, he had a jacuzzi which he loves, and went out for a walk in the woods earlier. They also had a visit from a therapy dog on that day.
We didn't do anything exciting, just visited McDonald's and my husband's new office. I bought myself a new tea and some Hotel Chocolat bars as treats for Mother's day.
In the evening, just before bedtime, Eddie took over my iphone and got snapping.
More plum blossom, this time on the way through the fields.
Today is Eddie's lucky day, as his much-expected Detective Pikachu Greninja-GX case file arrived in the morning. We had it on pre-order for a few weeks, and he kept counting the days until this new series is out.
We did a quick shopping in town, admired more of the Detective Pikachi sets in Game shop and had a little break in Costa.
