The Sun Was Out Early On Good Behaviour

This post contains no deep insights or meaningful message. It was just that for the first time this year we had nice weather, so I decided to cut short my Jackdaw weekend sabbatical to document an afternoon with Mrs Jackdaw and my two youngest fledglings in Alkrington Woods.

The car doors were opened, the seat belts unfastened, and they were off……

The signs were good.

Enticing the swans.

“Come back!” Fickle fowl.

Under a watchful eye

Look at that long lamented blue hue.

“No fishing” say the fish.

Everyone needs a helping hand. A tree split down the middle gets some support.

Well this is the time to see buds on trees, but cans of Bud?

Christmas survivor. The tree that was decorated by children at Christmas, featuring in my December post ‘When Is Holy Wholly Holy?’ Some of the decorations have made it through the winter storms, and look especially good when you are lay beneath them.

  1. Wonderful photos. Your children are adorable as is that mini waterfall!
    Great post, so cleverly written. 🙂 (The Bud-ding tree.) Glad you had a great day.
    There are hardly any swans in my area. There was one in a small man-made lake near me. I don’t know what happened to his mate. He was pretty ornery, however.
