Spring Flings….

The weather is colder at the moment than it was through most of December and January, meaning those fleeting feelings of spring briefly appear, and then scamper away as the frosty wind returns.

We spent the weekend with family and loved pottering around beautiful old Bisley….

…an incredibly quaint and old-fashioned little village, the church dates back to 13th century…

Bisley2

…while the old well structure on Wells Road, with its seven ornamental spouts forming a public water supply is a must-see, Munchkin could barely resist the puddles…

…after a bracing, wintery walk, we stopped for a glass of wine and a spot of people-watching in the relatively new Stirrup Cup…

And then headed to Westonbirt for a potter amongst the trees, and the first sights of some spring blossom..

The Stick Man trail – great for the over fives – means it is getting busier at the weekends, but there was still quiet woodland spots with no-one around and just the sun filtering through the trees.

It was quite the idyllic weekend, the countryside shifting from winter to spring  – and then back again – and plenty of time for running around outside, squelching through the mud and squealing at everything.
