Cornish Hedges, Another Poppy and Empty Nest

1   Cornish hedges change colour as the season progresses. We start with the pale yellow of Primroses, then the glorious haze of blue from the masses of Bluebells and now the hedges are pink – with Rhododendrons, Pink Campion and Foxgloves.

2   I love the way Poppies are all crinkled and crunkled when they first emerge from their furry cages.

3   The Blue-tits on BBC’s Spring Watch flew the nest today and so have our fledglings but we are not sure when, just that the nest is now empty, just a bit of nesting material stuck around the edge as evidence – and my photo to be seen here.
