Out for a run this morning and heard the first cuckoo of the year. Twice. Does this mean a lovely hot summer? It's all a bit odd. The oil seed rape had been in flower for nearly three weeks and the bees are loving it. However, it means we won't be getting any spring honey this year as they need it for themselves.
The garden is also blooming early. The wisteria is a month early, ditto the peonies. It is all looking lovely although the weeds are also blossoming!
