Nature isn't worrying about viruses and more and more plants and shrubs are bursting into colour. The Wisteria too is beginning to colour up and having been festooned with CD's and plastic owls to stop the birds from eating the buds, all defences have now been removed as the flowers begin to open revealing their intoxicating perfume in the warm spring sunshine. The rest of the garden is alive with pollinating insects on overtime and birdsong from dawn until dusk. The Japanese acers are wearing their spring livery and the colours are all so fresh and vibrant. Cowslips are all blooming in our mini meadow and can also be found having self seeded in lots of other nooks and crannies around the garden. We've succeeded in preventing the birds from eating the Wisteria buds and it's just beginning to flower. I can hardly wait!!
