Now that spring is here (allegedly!) we have been out and about with visiting family, to nearby Castle Kennedy Gardens which are stunning and an absolute must to visit if you are in this area. Acres of informal gardens to explore and lose yourself in, with rhododendrons and azaleas in flower at the moment and a sweet resident oyster catcher nesting near the lovely walled garden.

We had a new visitor of our own this week too – a cuckoo, seen here on the garden fence just a few feet from the house!
