Five on Friday


Hello everyone!  It's been a while since I last posted a blog as we've been so involved with family commitments and travelling here and there over the last two months it hasn't been possible to spend time on the computer.  Our daughter went home today after staying over the Easter holiday so I'm joining in the Five on Friday Meetup hosted by Tricky and Carly even though I'm posting later than usual. 
We went to Buxton in Derbyshire yesterday where we met up with other family members and had some lunch together with a walk through the Pavilion Gardens and the town with its beautiful Georgian buildings.  The Spring is a good time to enjoy the Gardens and we were entertained by some amusing moments as ducks and ducklings swam along the water channel of the River Wye which runs through the town.  Parent ducks were encouraging their young to slide down the little waterfalls and some were braver and more adventurous than others.  Happily all managed to slide down into calmer water with parent ducks leading the way.





I'll share some more of our walk around beautiful Buxton soon.  Wishing you a good weekend,
Linda :)

  2. Loved seeing the ducks, that's so sweet. I often stop to feed the ducks with some bird seed I have in the car. Last year the very young kids at church, went on a walk to feed the ducks whilst the older ones went cycling. I found a 'recipe for ducks' and took large plastic bowls, wooden spoons and the ingredients along so they could mix and then feed the ducks. I think it was whatever quantities you had of-
    Tin of sweetcorn, lettuce, oats, birdseed and peas.
    They loved it. Cathy x

  12. Lovely to see the ducks in the gardens and to see how their parents looked after them. Buxton is a lovely place to visit and there is always so much to see and do there. It sounds as if you have been busy overt he last few weeks, sometimes blogging has to take a back seat for a while:)
