Spring has Sprung

The same day I saw my first orchid in flower of 2009 (see below) the swallows appeared in my garden.  Behind them the herons stood like clichés along the shore and beyond that the eider and mergansers floated past.

Today I have put anti-fouling on the boat ready for summer use.  I put it back in the water with the help of my daughter, her fiancé and Calum about ten days ago.  A swallow is twittering on the telephone wire outside the house and a seal has its nose out of the water out in the bay.  I haven’t seen an otter in the bay for a few weeks.

The flora is coming along – over a third of the way there, now.  Comments still most welcome!
