Please do not adjust your eyesight; most of my photos this week are even more blurry than usual due to the incessant high winds we have had. Between the showers the first lawn daisy raised its face to the sun.
The quince is in full swing.
The lilac buds are teasing us.
Can you spot the robin in the cherry plum tree. The birds are singing their little hearts out at the moment, attracting mates and warning off rivals. Never has “You’re going home in a private ambulance” sounded so sweet.
The cherry plum blossoms seem pretty resiliant, I’m surprised they haven’t all blown off.
The queen bumblebees also seem burly enough to brave the gales. There was no shortage of fluffy bee butts on the Mahonia.
The flowering currant is currently about to flower so I expect lots of bees on it next week.
