There is so much happening in the garden. I just love this time of year. The plum tree is full of blossoms and thankfully also full of pollinators. The most colourful of which was this Red Admiral. It’s a little bit worn, so must be one that managed to get through our winter.
There are bees too and hoverflies, including these little ones, which I still need to identify.
In the polytunnel, the early potatoes are finally showing through and the broad beans and the mangetout are growing well.
The chicks are getting big and my husband was busy making a little enclosurer for them that we’ve put into the polytunnel for now. Already yesterday, the smallest chick was seen eating a slug!
The Juneberry (Amelanchier) is also flowering. The flowers are so delicate. We look forward to the fruit.
