Aside from patches of bad weather, it feels like spring already and activity in the garden is picking up.
I’ve seen birds flirting and mating in the garden. In fact it’s been so relatively mild I don’t think the collared doves stopped!
House sparrows have been whizzing by chasing each other, and blue tits have been checking out the nest box. Something has been having a go at a patch of moss in the garden, it’s most likely the birds taking it for their nests.
Our Robin appears to have been chasing off, and tussling with a male sparrow, and maybe a dunnock too. I’m not sure what that’s about. Has anyone else seen them do that?
The first shoot is a crocus, which is to be expected, but the other one is a daffodil 🙂
And these are poppy seedlings sown last autumn. So far they’ve survived the colder days.
My raspberry, blackberry and currant plants have buds on them as well. It’s all kicking off!
