Spring is in the air

The birds are singing and collecting nest material.

At work today I noticed both Elder and Blackthorn bursting into leaf (Elder leaves work very well as an insect repellent) and the wild plum trees at the bottom of my garden are now in blossom.

On Sunday I saw my first Peacock butterfly of the year and there are a surprising number of moths crossing through the headlight beams of my car when driving at night.
