Spring just keeps getting better, everything has really taken advantage of the amazing weather over the last couple of weeks, with only the odd thunderstorm punctuating clear blue skies.The Icelandic volcano gave the horizon a kind of historic quality, with the only things visible the clouds and the birds. Food for thought in these energy strapped times!
Although the daffodils are nearly over we thought we would record some of the numerous species that inhabit the Hill, here are just a few to give you a feel!
The blossom is now out, and the Bumble Bees seem drunk on the nectar as they bounce from flower to flower! It really is a beautiful sight and sadly not long enough, but as with all things it makes way for more natural magic.
Oh by the way, the bluebells that we have been talking about over the last few months in the diary have just started to flower! we will bring you more images as the carpet gradually reveals itself it really will be spectacular, as its only now that the extent of their cover has been determined and they seem to reach all areas of the woodland!
not wishing to sound like a stuck record, but….!
