|Capillary thread moss|
|Moss and lichen covered the twisted branches|
|Naughty sheep - due to be moved out of the meadow soon before they can |
eat any more of the flowers!
Bug Mad Girl amused herself hunting for bugs, finding several ladybirds, a millipede and a tiny bee that was crawling through the grass.

It may have been a spring flower walk, but the sunshine, butterflies, bugs, fungi and of course the flowers made it a really wonderful afternoon. To top it off we met up with a facebook/twitter friend (putting a face to the name) and enjoyed a cup of tea and some cake. Bug Mad Girl made sure she tasted each of the cakes, just to make sure they were safe for everyone to eat.
