Maximum temperature 19C, minimum 4C.  12 kmh NE wind.   Dry.
Mrs Blackbird taking a bath.

The perfume from the Choisya ternata is very strong.

Bee and Rosemary.....

doing his job....

and another one heavily laden with pollen at the cherry blossom...

also doing his job.

The poppies opened in the sun today.

Vinca.

White bells.

Le Gendarme beetle, they are everywhere at the moment.

Common Lizard.

Now planted, parsnips, coriander, spring onions, red chives, one row of carrots - more compost required to plant the remainder.  Seedlings in the greenhouse for peppers, leeks and courgettes.

  1. I never tire of watching birds bathe, I find it so soothing and enjoyable! All of your photos bring me such joy, Diane. Here in Montreal we are having a beautiful, mild and sunny day. Tomorrow and Wednesday are calling for rain, and a lot of it. But then I think of "April showers bring May flowers", so it's all good. I hope you have a fantastic week.

    1. Linda I am always delighted at your comments and I feel as if my blog is more than worthwhile. Glad the weather is warming up a bit for you but I hope the rain does not wash you away. Have a great week and take care Diane

  2. So loving the bird taking a bath. With the creek next to my house I see them in it often but I never get this close of a look at them bathing. Pretty cool.

    1. Thanks Pam, I also love watching the birds bath, the small birds often get in there in numbers and by the time they have finished there is no water left. I have to constantly keep an eye open for an empty dish! Not much water around this area, so they love having the dishes topped up Have a good day Diane

  3. Love how you caught the splashing water in that first shot. If I was a bee I'd head to the cherry tree. ;)

    1. Gaelyn the cherry tree is a constant buzz but it is not easy to get photos. The tree is quite tall and the bees just disappear from sight into the blossom. Have a great day Diane
