Easter Monday

We had a lovely wander along the Roseburn section of the Water of Leith today. The walkway smells of garlic as the wild garlic (the thick leaves in the photo below) and the wild leeks (the thin leaves) are all out in abundance, though mostly not flowering yet.

Some lovely daffodils about

and cherry blossom too

We had a wonderful view of a kingfisher as it dashed upstream, but it refused to pose for a photo as did the long tailed tit that was feeding in this tree (and that isn't visible in the photo!)

I watched the long tailed tit for several minutes as it hopped among the branches, looking for small insects to eat or perhaps for small pieces of moss or lichen (or spiders webs) for its nest.

We also wandered through Dean Village, a lovely little part of Edinburgh. You can see a photo of this area, over on my Shapeshifting Green blog.

I'd like walking through that field (though I'd need to bring a picnic lunch because the scent of garlic makes me hungry!)

Nice day for a walk! Nice here now too - lotsa folks out and about!

You do have some lovely wanders.

What a lovely wander ... and I was thrilled to see the wild garlic - I was only writing about it recently!

All the best Jan

looks so warm and sunny there. LOVE daffodils, thanks for sharing that photo in particular. A special significance for me as they were my mom's fav flower.
