River, Cars and Gardens

What a lovely day, it's a pity the rest of the weekend is meant to be so bad.

I went for a walk along the river first thing. I never expected to see much but saw a Grey Wagtail and BIG surprise a Common Sandpiper.

Then went and picked dad up went and bought a new car (ahem) and then went to Anglesey Abbey. It's a lovely garden and one that is different throughout the seasons.

nice to see some damsels.

all photos taken with a Tamron 18-250 - not ideal for damsels!! But convenient!

The flowers are fantastic! Those roses are unbelievable, wow. That Pan in the garden is wonderful. You can ship that one over to me, lol. Lovely picture of your dad as well. Great pictures all.

I really like the two dead trees - nature's own sculptures.

Great pics again :)

What an impulse buy!! Just like that. Pick up dad and buy new car, then on we go. You can't get away with a throwaway comment like that. What did you get?

The forecast has turned a bit better up this way for the rest of the weekend, so I'll be out testing that lens again. I've put today's results on blog.

Wonderful flower pictures Pete (I admit that I know not only a third by name). I like the Pan sculpture - though the face of that particular one looks more like the face of a Satyr to me. LOL LOL LOL
