The Easter weekend

On Easter Saturday we had our first butterfly of the year in the garden – a comma. On Sunday we had a Speckled Wood and a White.

On Saturday – as previously mentioned, we had out first Siskin and on Sunday we had quite a few of them – all female this time. The niger seed also attracted the pair of Goldfinches and some House Sparrows.

Usually all our frogs go into hiding when Helen visits but this week-end one was kind enough to say hello on Sunday.

There are now quite a few flowers out but the Daffodils and Tulips still provide the high-spots of colour.

  1. What a wonderful treat to remind you of the ressurection....a butterfly :o). I really appreciated your comment on my last posting and the thought of our new year beginnning on Easter...that IS brilliant thinking!!!

    Our Easter Sunday blossomed a few flowers in my soul, a freshness that I needed.

    ♥ to you, my sweet and fun friend,
