Spring arrives, despite Storm Ciara

Storm Ciara thundered across the UK yesterday, causing havoc in large parts of the British Isles and Ireland, but nature carries on regardless, and Spring is definitely on the way. My mum’s garden is a blaze of colour already!

Scruffy finds first signs of Spring!

Scruffy dog was so excited to find these daffodils on his walk near Newport, Wales yesterday!!! Daffodils are the official Flower of Wales and by the end of the month the fields, road verges and every spare piece of ground should be covered in them!

Autumn Berries

I’ve never seen one of these before, but apparently it’s a Himalayan Honeysuckle and is regarded as a weed in places like Australia and NZ! The bees love the flowers and the birds love the berries, so as far as I’m concerned, it’s a winner! It looks beautiful too. In the last photo, blackberries mingle…

Bee Frenzy!

I didn’t realise until after I had posted them, that all the pics today are purple and yellow!
