Signs of Spring.

After a damp week the indications are that Spring has sprung.
The sun is out this morning and during the week the garden has sprung into glorious life.
But as well as the bright green leaves on the horse chestnut and the white blossom on the pear tree all the usual predators have arrived.
Snails are chomping.
Yesterday I found several drowsy wasps attempting flight and mostly failing, lying dying in my summer house...I shall need to give it a thorough Spring clean over the weekend...I really don't need the new season marked by an explosion of wasps!
In the house I am finding flies, looking too heavy for their wings making unconvincing flights.
This morning the glass of water next to my bed contains a blue bottle!
Time to start putting a coaster on it.
Spring has sprung.
April Fools day is very dull at Tregear Vean....thank goodness but the various insects etc are doing their very best!

  1. Insects particularly spiders abound here. A big clear out of the garden last week revealed the huge webs behind garden sheds and other things. Also mice are about, one was brought in live into the house by one of the cats, which one is debatable, but we safely got it into a humane trap and released it well away from the naughty cats.

    This is the second year that it has happened, The cats are old and too well fed to hunt, so it must have been an adventure seeker to get caught. But unharmed, and we suspect a cat without too many teeth.
