There really is something extra special about climbing up into a tree with your picnic and eating it up in the branches. I left the kids to it yesterday and didn't climb the tree this time!
They had a wonderful time up in the tree.
We all enjoyed the stunning views of the Vale of Aylesbury...
... and chased a few butterflies around.
When we got home, the sun had brought the butterflies out of hiding and two peacocks and a red admiral spent the afternoon on the buddleia bush. It finally felt like summer!
