A few things I've noticed of late:

  • Butterflies abound, of many species, but orange tips are particularly noticeable.
  • The cherry blossom has been and gone in a scant couple of weeks. It was blowing down the road today like snow as strong winds whipped in ahead of the storms (which never actually came).
  • Wasps are bigger than I remember. Or is it just queens building their new nests?
  • It's been ridiculously hot and dry and looks set to stay that way for a little while.
  • I've seen lots of frogspawn but that's gone and I don't see any tadpoles.
  • Spiders are everywhere in the last couple of weeks – in the house, in the garden, many varieties, big and small.
  • A lot of the birdlife in the garden has faded away in favour of quarrelling sparrows.

  1. Lots of orange tips here, but no wasps. Maybe they are just lurking, biding their time…..
