Peering through the hedge

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...



  1. Oh those snowdrops - how wonderful.

    I noticed some peeking through the other day at one of the local schools.

    Have a lovely day...and hello.
