Spring is definitely here now; the birds are very active, my nesting material is disappearing, and the garden is blooming 😀
I think I’ve mentioned previously that I’ve seen sparrows and siskins taking nesting material. I’ve seen sparrows calling from our swift box, so it really does look like they are nesting there again. The wood pigeons are chasing each other, and I believe I saw magpie flirting the other day.
The flowers are also moving, my fritillary are out, more daffodils, bluebell shoots, and lots of thing are budding. It’s so nice to see 🙂
There are loads of bumblebees out too, I’ve seen so many flying by as I’ve been gardening. Some might have been going into one of our bird boxes.. I believe I saw one shelter from the rain in one if nothing else. And one particularly warm day, I saw peacock butterflies, and a tortoise shell.
We’ve continued to make progress on our plans this year (and inexplicably make more). Our compost was dug out; there was less usable stuff than I was hoping but it’s a learning curve. We put back in what wasn’t done and we’ll keep going.
The climber and it’s trellis I mentioned is in and the planter of herbs I wanted has been brought and sown. I’m really determined to get lots done this year!
Hows you’re garden growing?
