Spring!

Posted: March 28th, 2024

AS mad March tires itself out and we await April’s showers, I am struck by the awesome show of spring flowers this year.

The cheerful early daffs are fading now, but the grape hyacincth, primulas, tulips (I have just the one!), pansies, primroses and hellebores are all showing off outrageously.

The blue tits are busy flitting back and forth from their nesting box, while the starlings (Latin name, appropriately, Sturnus vulgaris), have wrecked the birds’ feeding station.

We do have reasons to be cheerful. Ed.                                                 (pic: ming-jun-tan/unsplash)
