|The refurbished greenhouse|
Many of the daffodils are still flowering including the smaller varieties.
Over the weekend many queen buff-tailed bumblebees were seen as they flew around nest prospecting. They are often drawn to crocus flowers which present a bit of a problem for them as they have to dive in deep to get at the pollen
|The Borage has started flowering early- favoured by bees|

On Saturday the garden group spruced up the greenhouse staging and then replaced the plants which had been put in the summer house for the past two weeks.
|The paving slabs are repositioned|
|The plants are back in their new home|
|What is the weather station reading at the end showing?|
Yes just before 14.00hrs it was +31C in the greenhouse. It was very warm in there and time to get out!
Whilst dropping off some materials today a unusual sight welcomed. Has anybody lost a black chicken? It was wandering about and took a liking to the willow classroom.
The next jobs lined up are to sort through the compost bins and dig in what we can, following this work on the Jurassic Garden will continue.
POST NOTE; The chicken has been claimed and is now safely back in the chicken run in nearby Marina Gardens.
