Cornish Hedges, Another Poppy and Empty Nest

30 May

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.

    I agree with you about the poppies, they are so pretty like that texture 😀

    I had to look up baby blue tit – never heard of one before. They are so cute. I watched a Utube video of one. Wish we had them around here.

    Drooling with envy at your hedge photos. Glad you came out from under the big floppy hat to take them.

    Ah, your baby blues blew.
    Boo whoo whoo
    why what will do.
    Till the next baby blues…..I don’t think that will be a problem for you.

    Commenting with google for the time being. Firefox and WordPress seem to be misbehaving together.
