The birds are singing their hearts out. They also like to tap on the roof windows and the shiny cowl on the wood-burner which sounds like Morse code. For the last few days there have been frequent showers with occasional small gaps in between. Yesterday I dashed out and got a double row of peas in before being rained off. In the last few days I have sown field beans and parsnips outside and many more seeds inside.
The Autumn sown broad beans are in flower.
The bulbs are looking beautiful. I have my first flowering Anemone with many more flowers to come.
Meanwhile I continue to inspect all of the newly planted trees to see which have survived their planting out. The almond is in full leaf and the buds on the peaches are swelling with an exciting hint of pink blossom but only time will tell if they are all going to live.
