Bank Holiday Monday - and a quick postcard

Bank Holiday Monday has been cold and blowy but not too wet. We went for a walk to see the bluebell woods and a field FULL of cowslips, climbed the track above the village first. We dodged a couple of rain showers and some hail but managed to stay dry.
In the middle of nowhere, where 4 tracks meet in the woods, is the Gingerbread Cottage. I'm sure it has a real name and these days it looks lived in and loved, but just imagine living here!
Just past it is the field of cowslipsand on the right are the bluebell woods.I don't know what this pink flower is that was growing between the wood anemones and the celandines...

There's always someone who lets the side down... It's really boring when the humans stop and get excited about boring flowers, so much more fun to find some fox poo and roll in it. But it all ends in tears or at least a quick bath!
And just to add in some crafting, here's a postcard that was made by sponging Distress Inks onto card and overstamping with an Elusive Images tree stamp.
