April 16th 2013 Spring has sprung and summer is on the way…

16 04 2013




I have spent a few hours this afternoon in warm sunshine weeding the beds by the woodland path. Now that most of the leylandii are out there is a lot more light getting through and we should be able to plant a wider range of plants. There are a few wood anemones out and the first blossom is out at last (a pissardii cherry). As ever the pond looks great, this time with the wind rippling the surface of the water. There are lots of newts and the iris are growing at last but no frog spawn. And I saw a bumble bee visit a hellebore – the first I’ve seen this year.
