Just a quick post today.
Over the last 2-3 days I've had a visit from a Nuthatch and this morning the male Brambling was still evident. I'm surprised as I thought he would have left by now. A couple of days ago I also had a visit from a Wren - which is very unusual for my garden so I'm delighted - such pretty birds.
And today, I managed to get the grass cut, for the first time this year, in the sunshine. And now - well I'm thoroughly enjoying the wonderful scent of newly cut grass - oh what a heady perfume!
The first frog spawn to be produced back on 25 February is now showing signs of development and the small black dots have taken on the appearance of 0.5 cm brown worms and are wriggling about in the sunlight.
Newly cut grass; tadpoles on their way; daffodils blooming cheery yellow; birds singing full voice, warm sunshine; the thought of holidays - it must be Spring - and it really puts a spring in your step!
