Spring



It is absolutely glorious weather today, as it was yesterday and we had so much planned to do over the long weekend but I seemed to have picked up a sickness bug. I am so annoyed I have been pottering doing a few things but nothing like I had hoped to do.

I have finally re potted the tomatoes and peppers, sown a few more seeds, weeded, divided and replanted some herbs and just generally fiddled.

In the yard this morning I took a few photos. Spring has certainly arrived ,yet we still woke to a white frost again this morning.

Photo: Blackbirds.

1st taken 5th April ( a little blurry as the nest is above my head height, so very much a case of aim and shoot, also I didn't want to disturb the parents.)

2nd photo taken today,5 days on.Both parents are busy feeding their hungry youngsters.









Photos: Cock pheasant, a daily visitor taking advantage of an easy meal.





Photo: Alfie 9 days old.
