Our daffodils were ready to emerge into a brave new world only to be confronted by storm Ciara, followed closely by Dennis.
They decided they were fed up waiting and came out anyway. A few lost their heads, but most are fit and well and basking in today’s sunshine.
While photographing the daffodils a couple of our feathered residents decided to check out the action.
The cherry blossom isn’t going to let a few windy days stop it either.
Lastly, the heathers are holding their own with no sign of being intimidated.
To my delight the wildlife just gets on with ‘life in the wild’. The grass is sodden; squelchy underfoot, with so much surface water that it rises above my garden boots as I walk. There are large pools in the flower beds, and still the plants are determined to welcome the new Season.
Birds are calling to each other, making the most of the longer, brighter days, and foraging for emerging food supplies.
What’s happening with the wildlife in your area? Do you have resident birds, or are you close to parkland? Have they been affected by the dreadful storms recently? With such devastation around I take pleasure and reassurance in the wonder of wildlife.
I hope you have enjoyed my post. If you have please like, share, and comment.
Thank you for reading.
Love the photos. Sun and shadows too.
Gorgeous photos – seeing the bright yellow & the cherry blossom & the birdies makes me think of spring. So pretty & full of hope. Resilience too, after surviving the storms. It’s been back to gale force winds overnight here and it looks like yet more rain is forecast over next week. Yikes. Is that your garden, with the cute little bridge, Maz??
Hi Caz Thanks for message. Yes it’s the Japan Garden I created soon after we moved here. It keeps growing though! 😉 Bamboos have gone berserk and really need dividing. I think it’s bigger than the last garden we had in Essex. I love it. Great for mindful walking. Alternating here between calm and stormy. Bit like me. Enjoy Sunday. Maz xxx
