What’s coming up, into bloom, not behaving, visiting, living in, passing through? Post a photo or two, and share your garden year with others 😁

Hellebores, lovely bright crocus, and snowdrops.

I had Starlings stealing the Robins mealworms so I had a cunning plan to keep them out-‘they don’t like confined spaces✔️, they’re not trusting✔️, I’ve got it’. So I built a cage around the mealworms, that’ll show em. . .Nope they flew straight in & took em anyway. Just for the entertainment-they’ve earned the mealworms👍🏻👏🏻👏🏻😂

Nice to get up close, Rocky.

We've a good display of blackbirds having a punch up this afternoon. Guess it's that time of year again.

Our dwarf daffodils are out now but our growed up ones are late this year. The verges have been full of them in bloom for several weeks.

Just a few signs of spring here too and a little Camellia in a pot that has finally decided to put on a show.

Lovely Camellia. I bet the beautiful spring primroses are out along the walls down your way Tinny? Daffys aren’t quite as well on up here.

We had a pair of small burglars on our back gate feeding area this morning. Big garden, they are around all day, getting very tame.

I prefer the Reds but you can’t take away from the Greys cheek😂😂

They are very funny to watch, early morning is “crazy ivan” time, lots of chasing and tail wafting. We could do with applying for some of the squirrel birth control pellets they are talking about! One of local cats like to stalk them, but it’s no match for their antics.

I thought our Woodpecker  was around this morning. But no, just a very clever Starling mimicking their call. Clever birds, beautiful colours as well. Another mimics our car alarm.....whee hoo, whee hoo😂

We've got primroses out, they're very sheltered on our footpath, the mild weather will bring the rest on soon. 🏵

Beautiful Rocky. They have usually gone by time I have done fumbling for my camera 😂
