No nest yet, but plenty of frogspawn.

In these uncertain times it's lovely to watch how nature carries on as normal. Frogspawn arrived on 6th March in the largest of our ponds below the natural spring which feeds them. With all the rain through the winter they have been overflowing quite often, but now all is okay with this dry spell. This one pool is crammed with frogspawn, yet nothing in the other pools. The birds seem to be pairing up but no nest building yet in the boxes up in the wood, normally it's into April before they start. Chris has seen a sparrow carrying a feather, but they declined to use my sparrow terrace put up last year. Being concerned the entrance holes were too small, I have double checked but they are the 32mm suggested as the correct size. 
Have put up two new nest boxes by the smaller stream on the end of our barns and have seen a pair of blue tits checking one out, so hopeful. Have made a new seat out of some yew we had from the trees we cut down back in 2002.
Daffs are looking great this year, hopefully the sign of a good garden year. Been trying to catch up on the winter jobs, given the woodland garden a good sort out. Two rambling roses needed tying up, clearing the path, dividing some of the snowdrops, looking really good.Trying to clear some of the bindweed from the bed outside the dining room beside some posts I've replaced. Some seeds sown, and no mice damage on the sweet peas yet.

Realizing how great God is when He created this world is indeed overwhelming heart warming. This is actually one of the reason why I am working really hard to earn money and save it for later travels. I would like to discover at least what this world has to give for a normal girl like me. I can't wait to see more and appreciate things even better. Anyway, let us make sure to thank the Lord for the love He has poured upon us and for creating a world that is full of greatness. He is indeed the greatest creator of all.
