Foxgloves, Chickens and Clevedon

Out with Bella this morning, noted that this widlife meadow back garden has been half mown to reveal yet another lovely wisteria in the hedge.
The sun struggling to come out.
Pretty little rosa rugosa just emerging. 
The foxgloves seem to have all appeared overnight - this lovely stand in a neighbour's garden. 
Fresh new leaves on this ragged robin. 
This van is a regular vistor to Malvern Buildings - it has acquired a new sticker (replacing the one with a ball apparently halfway through the window). 
An abandoned hairband. 
This afternoon, the weather perked up and we went off to Clevedon for a jaunt. I didn't know that they have a mini-railway. Well, they have a track - but I didn't actually see a train.
The marine lake looking across the Bristol Channel to Wales. 
We walked along the coastal path and came upon a magnificently restored lookout. 
Su looking out for my photography skills while Bella posed.
This was the lookout - a bijou structure. 
At the parting of the ways we headed for the Iron Age Hill Fort 
There was only really the grass-covered hill to see, but the view was splendid. 
More foxgloves in woods by the church. 
Very nicely turned out chickens by the church 
This is the church - St Andrews, dating from the 12th Century.
We stopped for afternoon tea at Tiffin, an excellent establishment with decent drinks and wonderful cakes.
Back to Bath via Waitrose, which has now taken over the entire podium apart from the library. 
This day a year ago, I was investigated by one of Mark's chickens (subsequently re-homed round the corner).
