Spring in Poole Park

flower beds

We spent about 5 hours yesterday in Poole Park for a picnic and some exercise.  All of the spring flowers are now in bloom, the most shocking were the dark purple, almost black tulips.  While walking almost 5 miles, we found a new path and came across baby ducks and geese.  The most precious part was the one mama goose with all her babies under her wings protecting them from the cold wind.

It is hard to believe the pictures of all our family & friends in short sleeves and swimsuits.  It is cold here again, to the point that we need our scarves and gloves.  But if there is one thing we have learned in England, it is that you can’t let the weather stop your fun!

You can't really see, but there are at least 2-3 babies under those wings.
