The Police Station at Bulls, New Zealand. The whole town has bull-related murals. Go there and love the bulls. Mmmmmm bulls.
The Common Darter (Sympetrum striolatum) is a dragonfly of the family Libellulidae native to Eurasia. It is one of the most common dragonflies in Europe, occurring in a wide variety of water bodies, though with a preference for breeding in still water such as ponds and lakes.
Baking hot day. Mum and Dad came up to meet Kato. He slept for pretty much the full length of their visit. Went for a coffee, came back, played with Kato. He slept. I slept. He got in the washing machine. Not a bad Easter Saturday all in all.
An English Bluebell on St. George’s Day. I am a patriotic swine.
If you like flowers, gardens and a gentle stroll, I recommend Hole Park at this time of year. The following is taken from their website, which sums the place up much better than I can…
Tucked away in the Weald of Kent, between the pretty village of Rolvenden and the charming town of Cranbrook, lies Hole Park Gardens which has to be one of the best gardens in Kent. An attractively laid out, privately owned 15 acre garden, Hole Park is often referred to as a hidden gem, and there are plenty of treasures to be found within its walls and hedges.Hole Park has been owned by the Barham family for the past four generations and is set in over 200 acres of superb classic parkland. The colourful gardens enjoy far reaching views over the hills, woods and fields of the picturesque Kentish Weald. They are a skilful mix of formal design and more naturalised planting, giving colour throughout the seasons.
The house, which is a private family home and therefore not open, was largely reconstructed in 1959 and is now little more than a quarter of its previous size. It resembles the house as it used to be before additions in the Elizabethan style were built in 1830.
Unsurprisingly, I took a few photos… so enjoy.
Go and visit. You know it makes sense.
