Today is Easter Sunday : 12th April

It is yet another glorious day here.
When we were working outside yesterday, the garden was alive with honey bees. As far as we know, no-one has a hive locally, but it was wonderful to hear them buzzing around us.
A peacock butterfly also alighted on one of the empty compost bags. Finally Nature’s children are finding their way into our garden.
I looked out of the window this morning to see a pair of great tits eyeing up our tit box.
That and a robin’s nesting box were put up on the fence the first Christmas we were here, but there was never any interest. Our neighbour had her cherry tree cut down last year and that was where the tits used to nest, so maybe they are looking for an alternative des res in our neighbourhood.

We had tit boxes up in the bungalow in Poole, affectionately named Tit Terrace but only had residents in Tit 1. Fifteen babies came out of that tit box the first year over the May Day bank holiday because we were home to witness them fledge. It was wonderful.
Then of course we had Kamikazee Pete and the saga of the trees.

Have a happy Easter everyone. Keep safe and well.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I love Spring, I think it is my favourite time of year. I’m still not seeing much evidence of it here yet, but my walks are brief and I’m not venturing that far from home given the circumstances. Our weather is still spotty and yesterday was extremely cold, but hopefully I’ll soon start to see some signs of rebirth. Glad you are having such a beautiful day on Easter Sunday Di. Happy Easter! Stay safe.
