..... with the weather over the last couple of days; some good sunny spells, but also some wet ones too.
It has been generally mild, though, and there's plenty of new growth in evidence in the garden. The orchid leaves have been growing strongly over the last couple of weeks, and the area which we left "wild" last season seems to have an abundance of them. It will be interesting to see how this meadow area performs this year - hopefully it will be even richer in its variety.
A blackbird is building a nest in the corner of the woodshed - it seems rather early, but the nest is already more or less complete. Photos to follow, hopefully.
