We've Found It !

It's been a long cold winter and we have kept checking to see where Spring is.


Well, at last we think it is here. The birds are building their nests.

Mr and Mrs Pigeon have returned to their nest they always use in the tree outside our window.

The daffodils have flowered well but are nearly finished now.

The dainty little primroses are flowering......

and today we saw the first violets.

Flynn: The mousies are back in full force. I hear them wherever I walk.

Mr. Pheasant is looking for a wife.

The vishus badgers are digging holes everywhere. We aren't allowed too close to their setts because they have big furroshus teeth.
Eric: Mum yelled at me because I wanted to see if anyone was home.


The grass is getting longer and greener. Yup, Spring is definitely here.

I am glad spring has found you. We found a great article about a pigeon and cat who are best friends, and posted it today. Maybe you could live with the pigeons too.

You have lovely land to wander over. Badgers sound interesting but not sure I like the sound of the biting teeth.

Say hello to Bucky Badger for us! We live in the Badger state.

Mum wishes she could have gotten a picture of the road sign in the UK warning about badgers, but the coach was going too fast!

Well done for finding Spring, Mum loves your violets. We are probably a few days behind you, our primroses & daffs are still going strong!

Summer next - HURRAY!

PS: In my old home there was a badger set at bottom of our woods - Badgers used to run away from me and Teddy when we were in the garden, but we never went near them (honest)

violinmuffin said...

Aw we love spring time! Lots of pretty flowers to see and smell!
We have never seen badgers... but they sound really scary!

Hannah and Lucy said...

Be careful your two boys - your idea of playing and the badgers idea of playing are two very different thinks. Stick to mouses and moles.

Beau Beau & Angie said...

Mum says fanks for yur nice werds bout her photos.

Good job scouting out Spring, boys! You know all the signs and check every one of them out.

I'm with you mom about not going near the badger's house, though. I know that every hole is tempting for you, but please try to restrain yourselves.

As always, I love your bright orange and white coats again the green of the grass. It's magical!

Jacqueline said...
