Every week day, on our way to school, we walk (sometimes run!) down this footpath.
Behind the hedge on the left is a neglected overgrown orchard.
It's a real haven for wildlife and I always peep over the hedge to see what birds I can see. Since childhood I've always kept half an eye out for birds and flowers whenever I'm walking. I recently saw a flock of Waxwings here, feasting on the apples which were still on the trees. It was the first time I'd ever seen any so it was a real delight.
This week, I spotted this lovely sight through the hedge... a glimpse of spring!
I love this little forgotten area.
After the rush of getting to school on time, I let my little one out of the pushchair and we saunter back up the path and peer through the hedge.
I'll let you know what else we spot...
