The first bee of the season. At last the sun is shining, the rain, for the time being, has ceased. It has been a long wet winter.
Many of the cherry trees are in bloom, they really do look so pretty. This is one of my favourites...........Prunus Autumnalis Rosea.
The birds are busy building nests ......Blue Tits have used the old water pump as a nesting site. I have also seen a Robins nest in an old watering can which I wedged between branches of a Beech tree in the copse a few years ago. A Peacock butterfly was spotted yesterday on the cherry blossom but I was not quick enough to capture. It would seem Spring has arrived.......I say that with caution, it is such an unpredictable season.
