Sing a Song of Spring...





Welcome to Prunella's Patch. Apologies for being away for so long...



Prunella has been enjoying the beautiful sunny Spring weather.
She has been aware that Ed the Red Kite has not made as many visits to her garden of late...





Red Kites breeding season is around March and April so Prunella assumes he has been busy setting up home with Mrs Ed.
His visits are very brief. 
If he has hungry mouths to feed he will undoubtedly be exceptionally busy looking for tasty morsels...




A Song Thrush has taken to perching high in the branches of Ed's favourite conifer tree...



 Prunella is often awakened in the early morning by it's sweet singing very close to her bedroom window...





Mr Blackbird and a cute little sparrow seem to enjoy his tuneful tunes too...



Nearing the end of April, Prunella's garden is now filled with beautiful blooms...












Even the dandelions are thriving...
 


The vibrant yellow reminding Prunella of her exciting adventure, a short flight in a yellow Tiger Moth, tucked safely in Whizzy's pocket with an occasional peek...





 






Prunella's friend Whizzy couldn't stop smiling from ear to ear...



Finally, staying on the moth theme, Prunella found a stripey caterpillar crawling around her garden...




An offspring from the Scarlet Tiger Moth spotted in Prunella's Patch the previous year.
Shame she didn't take it with her on her flight as it makes a great fashion accessory, though a tad tickly!






Until the next time, keep smiling,
 stay safe, happy and healthy.
Hugs to all.

Humbug anyone...






  
March is an eagerly awaited month in Prunella's Patch due to the welcome arrival of the flowers from her Magnolia Stellata bush. 
They burst open on bare branches, heralding the start of Spring. 
It has pride of place by her kitchen patio door. Being sited so, she doesn't miss a moment of its spectacular display.



 The prunus trees are at their best this time of year covered in a profusion of beautiful blossom...



The birds are happy to sit in their branches singing their hearts out for all to hear...


 The little Robin sings his song late into the evening as the sun goes down...


 Prunella has been entertained by the antics of a pair of  Long-tailed Tits. They are so incredibally cute especially when flying...


Checking on her shrubs Prunella noticed an abundance of garden snails. 
They reminded her of some colourful humbug sweets her gran used to eat...



Prunella is sure they will make a tasty treat for her small army of hungry frogs. 
Perhaps she should pick them and pop them into Freddie's Diner...


Until the next time,
 stay safe, happy and healthy.
Hugs to all.
