We seem to have skipped spring and gone straight to summer

This winter and spring the weather has been absolutely awful and then yesterday out of the blue we had an amazing sunny day.

Dandelion sunning herself

Freckles and Cinnamon dust bathing

Baby slow worm looking for the sun

A fifty pence piece for size comparison

The hanging basket looks amazing

The cherry tree is in blossom

The tulips have opened

This was the bargain pot that I split in two

Some late daffs

The veg plot is ready for planting

Emerald is back in the nest box

Emerald lays an egg

Speckles egg is on the left, Emerald’s egg is in the middle and Freckles egg is on the right.

I am so pleased that Speckles laid the day before yesterday and Emerald laid yesterday as it shows that they are both in good health and it was probably the awful weather holding them back. Dandelion is the only girl yet to lay but she looks okay at the moment.

After such a sunny day it suddenly changed to rain by dinner time and when I checked the girls at bedtime Emerald and Speckles had gone in to the chicken shed. For the first time I left Dandelion on her own perch. It is warm enough now to let the girls perch where they want to as long as it’s in the chicken shed.

Tomorrow we will plant the veg plot.

    Lovely pictures, Lovely weather. may it stay like this for ages.
    I start selling my plants again tomorrow.

    • It’s been cold, raining and miserable here today. It couldn’t have been more different from yesterday, so much so that we didn’t plant the veg plot. We will wait for a better day. It is forecast to be better weather from Wednesday.

      The good news is that Emerald and Speckles went in to the chicken shed tonight for the third night running.

    I am looking forward to see your garden and veg plot progress!

    • We do need to do a bit to the garden because pulmonaria and primula have taken over. We have bought a few new plants and we have got the veg plot planted so it’s a start.
