The beech tree was just opening it's leaves.
We followed the signs to the Rose Garden passing the Wildlife Pond on the way.
Our climb took us up to this, The Terrace Hill Garden Project.
The flower beds had been cleared and were very dry.
This was the view from outside the walls of the Rose Garden looking across to Malone House.
There's a steep drop down but it wasn't stopping some young children exploring.
I was a bit worried about them!
The bluebells were out.
My photo doesn't show the bluebells but they were growing on the bank.
On we walked, around the edge of this field and on to the Giants Ring.
Past this ploughed field and on to the sycamore tree.
Buttercups and bluebells were growing all around the edge of the Giants Ring.
Back to the gate and there was a path we couldn't resist exploring - with cow parsley nearly as tall as us.
and this inquisitive calf came to see us.
