Signs of Spring





It has been considerably warmer this week and things are looking so much better in the garden.  Frogs have returned to the pond and there is a huge amount of spawn.  I treated the birds to a new nesting box, from Crocus.  It has a beach hut look about it and I love it.  So apparently do a pair of blue tits who were in and out within 10 minutes of me putting it up.  Healthy salads also taste so much better when the sun shines!

Have a lovely weekend, hope the sun shines for you x

  1. I can't wait to get back into salads again, will be planting out our own leaves this week. Hurrah!
    The nesting box is brilliant, and the tits thought so too...!

  2. After the hard work in your garden, the planting out will be a doddle! I plan on starting planting next week, I feel really behind, but there hasn't been the weather for it yet has there. Have a lovely weekend Jessica

    1. I hope so too! Although last year was very stressful I had to keep getting the babies out of the pond! Julie x

    1. Strange to think you're now winding down into Autumn! It has been a very long winter this year for us in the UK Jx

    2. Love your flowers, are they daffodils? It's around 10 degrees here in Ireland but I still find it very cold. Hope you have a nice weekend

      All things nice...
