Spring is well and truly here


Just 3 weeks ago there was very little foliage on the hedgerow trees and bushes, only spring flowers out in the garden and not much wildlife around. After a few days of sunny weather everything has bloomed – in the country side and in the garden.

The rape crop has appeared in a week and there are swallows darting around just above the top of the plants under a really summery sky full of cumulus. I’m going to snap this scene throughout the year this year. Next to the rape are loads of cowslips, which are having a bumper year – they are growing all over the side of the roads in Herts this year.
