On Saturday afternoon we jumped in the car and Tom drove us over to this place, the Trap Grounds, as I hadn't been before. It's a wild space, a nature reserve area, just off the canal in North Oxford. Apparently bullfinches, snipe and great spotted woodpeckers make this area their home and we were lucky enough to spot a heron, I don't think I've seen one in "real" life before!
On Sunday we went down to our local park, took a wander through the nature reserve there and found a huge patch by the football field that they have left covered in dandelions... so so many! We laid down on the grass & dandelion bed for a while and gazed at the clouds moving across the sky in the warm afternoon sun before heading home for our roast vegetables with couscous and goats' cheese dinner.
And in an exciting update, I have reopened my Etsy shop! Now I'm off to cook dinner and watch Murder She Wrote. I hope you had a lovely bank holiday weekend!
