The garden springing into life…

Within a few days, Blackbrook has become overrun with new growth, clogged all too soon with something resembling hogweed which, in due course, the Environment Agency will deal with. ‘No mow May’ may be a good idea to allow wild flowers to develop but we are privileged to experience a profusion of wild flowers that nestle into the hedgerow.

Whilst there is new growth, there is also evidence of last year’s wild flowers which were planted in an effort to help biodiversity. These teasels have made it through the winter largely unscathed despite some attention from the goldfinches.
