The springtime agricultural yellow and the more subtle hedgerow yellows are beginning to appear. Acres and acres of oilseed rape are changing the landscape with the acid yellow of the flowers, the patchwork of fields must be an amazing sight from the air on a clear day.
On the dyke banks the Cowslips are blooming in a rather shy and reserved manner, perhaps because of the light ground frost.
A few more sunny, warm days and one of the dyke sides where we walk the two terriers will, we know, be absolutely covered in them.
Spring is here, now to watch for the first Swallows, Swifts and House Martins.
