British Summer Time

Huzzah! Yes BST starts this weekend. The clocks go forward on Sunday morning, which yes, means an hour less in bed but an extra hour of daylight in the evening.

Living in Scotland we get a lot of daylight in the summer, far less in the winter, but at the height of summer it barely gets dark.

I do like winter but around mid January I’ve had enough and just want to get outside.

Spring bulbs are currently in flower and the hedgerows are starting to come into leaf and it’s glorious.

First thing in the morning at this time of year the birds are so loud and their voices make me happy.

Living in the countryside we have a lot of wildlife around and a lot of birds. I’m not bad at identifying birds visually but I’m clueless when it comes to their song, hubby is much better than I am.

We feed the birds all year round here but at this time of year their starting to breed and build nests, summer visitors are returning and they are eating so much food!

We also have a pretty big Crow population who have decided that our bird feeders are their personal kitchen. I’ve had to wire the feeders onto their hooks so that the Crows don’t fly off with them, it’s happened before.

I’m on holiday from my day job next week and I have a list as long as my arm, a lot of blog work but I also have a gardening todo list and can’t wait to spend some time outside.

So, remember to put your clocks forward if you’re in the UK, your phone might do it for you but the kitchen clock won’t and that’s the one I always forget about.

See Ya!

    I can not wait until summer arrives here. Spring is ever so slowly settling in We still have a bit of snow here and there that has yet to melt away. The cardinals and robins have returned. I missed the birds and their little songs. I did notice now that I raked that the tulips are starting to pop up.
