That bit greener again, but most noticeably, for me walking round, warmer, and with it, more insect life. I wasn’t quick enough to catch the peacock butterfly I saw, and there was what might have been a speckled wood butterfly, but I’m not sure – it flew too strongly, more like a moth. Not so good on those. At least the honey bee, warming itself up on a patch of bare earth was easier to photograph, even is not making that striking a picture.
One nice surprise was a violet in flower – less welcome, some Japanese knotweed.
