The sun was warm and there were plenty of bees darting around the garden. With this in mind two more of the insect homes were installed. The new ladybird house was put up near the pond and the butterfly house was put alongside the pond dipping platform where it will get plenty of sun which will keep it warm inside for hibernating butterflies - and maybe moths!

The mild temperatures have kick started things. Nasturtiums are sprouting from self sown seeds of last year and in the pond insect life was abounding with plenty of pond skaters doing their stuff on the water. It should not be long if it stays mild before we see some frog spawn!
In the greenhouse the Hibiscus is trying to flower again. This winter has certainly been very mild up to now.
