Bright blue sky, white blossoms visited by honey bees and bumble bees, the pink blossom still to come out. Long proboscis bees in the aubretia and Bowles wallflowers and also in the flowers of the red maple, yellow, deep pollen, contrasted against the dark red of the buds
Sparrows are nesting somewhere, fighting they invade the white blossoms, marriage trysts, territorial disputes, who knows? The starlings are also finding nesting material, and are tame as a result, chatted to one this morning as he/she rummaged for suitable stuff, they nest up under the eaves round here.
So life is busy in the natural world, a queen bee hunting for home inspected the bird nesting box, the butterflies have flown the garage, and flutter happily round the large bay window at the front. Hedgehogs are already out, wonder if they will stop or the young find new sheds around here to raise their young, LS says our hedgehogs have been here for 20 years.
