The third week of April continued the theme of cold nights and dry sunny days. There are plenty of spring blooms out in the garden to attract the bees and butterflies. I believe this is a Holly Blue butterfly, now more common than the Common Blue.The hairy footed flower bees are still out and about. This female was on the flowering currant.
While the male was enjoying the aubretia.The dwarf tulips in the planter by the hedgehog feeder survived the frost.The Spanish bluebells are starting to flower.
The trees and shrubs are ringing out with the sounds of various birds. While on the fatball feeder this great tit was looking at the world from a new perspective.
The lilac flowers are nearly fully blooming, do you think they will be out before the end of April? Tune in next week to find out!
