Scenes from a suburban garden

I spent the weekend at my parents' home in suburban Manchester. It was lovely to see them again and the weather was beautiful on the Saturday morning, so we enjoyed some time in the garden

I loved this skeletonised sycamore seed

but aware my parents don't want sycamore trees in their lawn, I removed it from the grass after I'd photographed it!

So good you noticed this wonderful Sycamore skeleton in your parents garden. Most people pass these little gems of nature unnoticed.

I love the colors in those wine colored tulips, how beautiful!

Reading backwards to catch up ... I didn't think the latest post looked too bad weatherwise, but this one is definitely better -- bright and happy! Lovely to visit your parents any time of the year I'm sure, but perfectly wonderful during spring with all these beautiful flowers. I remember playing with Sycamore pods when I was a kid... they make good Pinocchio noses!
