Monday is a bank (or public) holiday shuffled along from the 1st - May Day. Unlike the French who always take the holiday on the actual 1st regardless of which day it is, we have the first Monday in the month of May making a long weekend.
Despite an iffy forecast for the weather it was lovely today so as Nigel's parents are down staying with us for the weekend we took them up to Fyne Court which is on the edge of the Quantocks about 2 - 3 miles up behind our house. If you recall this is also the place I managed to get the beautiful snowdrop photos earlier in the year.
The bonus as you can see is they've converted one of the buildings to a tea room - scones with jam and cream - scrummy!
After that we took the 'outlaws' for a drive through the Quantocks and stopped for a short while near a local reservoir
And the cow parsley is also just coming into bloom - hence the foreground feature in this photo - just trying to take something other than the usual views
Not much stitching with the visitors here
Just a little bluework - so easy to pick up as you sit and chat or watch the tv together - I thought I'd have a go at the snowmen I saw a few of you working on over the winter - one down, eleven to go
And I've been cracking on with my 365 Challenge Blocks - although I may well have a little bit of catching up to do on these when our house guests depart on Tuesday
