Another arch, honeysuckle adorns this one. This plant is good for moths, a useful source of food for the bats in the loft.
The woodland walk is changeing colour. Reds are starting to appear. Soon the shrubs will be in flower.
The copse is now quite dense and a great hideaway for the smaller creatures and birds.
It was full of bees this morning......the lamium their main source of interest.
Conifers and Elder give splashes of colour everywhere.
I planted this hedge two years ago. It contains hawthorn, rosa rugosa, hornbeam, rosa canina and clematis. A wonderful source of winter food for the birds. The bees of course will love the flowers.
On a sad note the Dunnock that was sitting on four eggs, has had her nest destroyed and the eggs removed. I fear a squirrel or weasel may be the culprit. I must say I am no great lover of the grey squirrel. The red, our native, is a different matter. They are now in decline and only survive in a few areas. The greys have slowly taken over their territories. I would not object to a HUMANE cull of the greys to give our beautiful red squirrel a fighting chance.
Well thats it for today.................have a fun weekend and happy gardening.
