Six on Saturday- 3rd April 2021

We have been enjoying lots of lovely spring sunshine today. Does the soul good.

Also doing the soul good is seeing the first of our solitary bees – these are Ashy mining bees. Beautiful bees that need a bare soil bank to nest it.

Tulips have also opened – adding splashes of red.

The tadpoles are growing.

The comfrey is flowering in the polytunnel and not far off outside.

We don’t have much spouting broccoli, but at least there is some.

And finally a lovely present of a flowering currant, just need to find a spot for it now.

Thanks to The Propagator for hosting Six on Saturday.

Have a lovely Easter everyone.

    It’s wonderful how just a few days of sunshine can cheer us all up. I don’t think I have ever seen those bees. Are they peculiar to Ireland or are they found in other parts of the UK?

      This is third year running we have them nesting in same soil bank. I need to clear some of vegetation off now so they will nest there again.

    A lovely post – so much life already in your garden! Loved the bees – I must admit I have never seen those here in Sweden. Bare soil banks are not that many in the vicinity, I might have to go and look for them. Tadpoles! My favourite little ones in spring. they are not here yet, but yours look full of life. β™₯
