Spring is in full swing, the trees are now lush and green and the spring flowers have been absolutely beautiful. The bluebells have been vibrant in amongst the hedgerows around the lanes in Uplyme. The Glen at the bottom of Fingle’s garden is now fully in leaf and we are surrounded by glorious green. This really has to be my favourite time of the year, new life emerging everywhere. The swifts, swallows and house martins have arrived back after their winter break! The sky above our garden is full of them dipping and diving and feeding on insects.
