The weather was promised sunny and warm but it turned out muggy and wet. No bother to us outdoor boys, we made the best of it, on our day trip to Stonyford nursery gardens, which is a magical place to spend a few hours amongst woods, ponds and a few goblins, elfs and fairies!
The visit began with some stinky fungi. No idea what this was but it bloody stank!
Then we found a substantial beetle. Adam held it close to his face and then started screaming that his eye was on fire so we doused it in water and he was ok.
The best part of the visit was staying still in the ‘bird hide’ and watching an inquisitive wren check us out. We were in his territory and the more still we sat the closer he came. The boys were mesmerised.
The rest of the outing was spent exploring the gardens and ponds in the rain.
We also saw some fairies
