Searching For Spring

The weather here on thursday was beautiful, and Hannah's wish was to take her doll out for a walk and look for spring!
We went down to Southsea seafront and walked through the Rose Gardens, Japanese Gardens and Canoe Lake park.

First we walked past the cricket ground which was full of Canadian Geese grazing,

Then across the park,
and past a beautiful carpet of Crocuses

and along to the Japanese Garden.
There were lots of signs of spring in the gardens, and the blossoms smelled wonderful.

The gardens were full of birds and Hannah was really excited to spot Blue-tits, Blackbirds, Pied Wagtails, a Wren and a really friendly Robin.
This little Robin followed Hannah around the pathways through the trees and sang all the time.

Of course, no walk is complete without ice-cream, and Hannah really enjoyed hers :-)
Such a beautiful day really lifted our spirits and showed us that spring really is on it's way.

What a beautiful sun filled day, just made to be outside enjoying life!
The little robin looks a dear, he was obviously very curious as to what Hannah was doing in his bit of woodland:)
