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.

Thank you kindly for your visit.
We dearly appreciate your comments and hope you had as much fun reading Prunella's Blog as we had writing it.   
Happy Blogging!

  1. Dear Prunella,
    the spring from your pictures will be arrived at Germany too. In the morning I hear the birds sing for my window. It's so much better then an alarm clock ;-)
    Greetings from Germany

  2. Hello Prunella, your blossoms are looking lovely. Love the sweet birds and the cool snails. Spring is finally arriving. Enjoy! Have a happy day!

  3. What a post, Prunella! I was already totally in love with the tenderly pink flowers of Prunus trees, then comes the blackbird (my favourite)... and then come the Long-tailed Tits! They shouldn't be very rare here, but I have never seen any. I'm dreaming of one day managing to photograph some. :)
    Such a lovely, happy post. We need posts like this in a day like this. My thoughts are in London now.
    Take care of yourself! Big hugs! <3
