It has been a gloriously suuny day today in Loweswater, these daffodils and crocus are making a beautiful display in Loweswater churchyard: it does really feel that Spring is here. The weather recently has encouraged me to take my camera with me when I’ve been out and about so for this post I am going to share some photos I have taken locally over the past couple of weeks.

I always smile at this time of year when I awake to bleating  on the radio, it’s Radio Cumbria  advertising their ‘lamb bank’ to help find homes for orphaned lambs. The main time for lambing in the valley is April but I found this little flock at the far end of Loweswater.

On the same walk I found these primroses by the roadside – you can even see the tarmac in the picture.

Most days I take the dog up into the woods behind Foulsyke and go past the new wildlife ponds – guess what! Frogspawn!

Last Sunday I walked round Buttermere and met the Buttermere belties at the the far end. Coming back round towards the tunnel there were some herdies in the field beautifully set against the crags behind. Before I came home I stopped  at the Syke Farm tea room for coffee and also to buy one of their super pies for later in the day.

I usually go down to Crummock early morning but one day I happened to walk down later in the afternoon and caught the sun coming across onto the lake from the west. The stone is a good marker for the level of the lake, it can go from being totally  submerged to being part of the beach.

Finally, a photo of Loweswater Church I took this afternoon.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little snapshot of Loweswater in the Spring.
