We’re embracing the wild side of the churchyard this month and ‘No Mow May’ helps us to appreciate the wildflowers among us by allowing nature to run free. Bluebells and forget-me-nots contrast beautifully with the long grass; they shine brightly but briefly, as they do every year.
The cherry tree blossom is also a welcome sight in the springtime, despite the recent bank holiday weather making staying indoors more tempting. Above ground, birds on the wing include bullfinches feeding their chicks. Their strong bills make these little birds experts at cracking nuts and seeds, something we gave thought to when replenishing our bird feeders this week (not an easy task in the strong winds!).
