The garden has been flowering for a few weeks too. First a few snow drops, then the crocuses and primroses. The garden is full of purple and lilac crocuses and these with the pulmonaria look great next to the yellows of the primroses and daffs.
With the lovely weather this weekend the butterflies have been out. There have been a few bees around for about three weeks now.
My neighbours removed a smallish tree today and I am now the owner of a few limbs :) which means that finally my "bug hotel" has a bit more substance! Actually, maybe I should really call it a "bug campsite"! It started out as a pile of twigs and now has some tree bits with it. But honestly, I can't imagine bugs are too fussy! It will need some work before it looks anything like the RSPB Wildlife Stack, but I am hoping the logs will create a good base.
No photos today, but I'm hoping that if the weather continues to improves I will be able to get out and get snapping.
