Wandering around I realise that the grass urgently needs a hair cut, but then so do I.
Large furry bumblebees, along with butterflies, and insects are busily going about their Spring tasks.
Male blackbirds are squabbling with one another, and I am taken aback at just how aggressive they can be. Various different tits busily flit around the hedgerows but spend time viewing the nest boxes on offer. 'Jenny' wren is observed scurrying around like a harassed housewife beneath the heathers, whilst solitary bees fly in and out of their luxury chalet style accommodation.
Saw 'Freddie' the fox this morning, peacefully curled up and snoozing in a corner of the flower bed. He appeared to have a smile on his face as if relishing the warming rays of the morning sun beaming down on him.
By spending time quietly and observing Mother Nature I appreciate even more the intricate and magical gifts that she offers.
What a relief it is to know that whilst things have changed so drastically for all of us, she is still busily renewing herself day by day.
