Hi All. Looking at the forcast looks like temp is raising and summer is on its way, at last, although I think its been a very mild winter this year, now for the flies!!!
Keep cool.

Quite agree. Not doing much mowing this year, leaving the wild flowers to seed and will cut back around the end of june. The insects and wildlife is in abundance and even had an Osprey overhead yesterday.

Wow, I've only ever seen one of those down at the Delta.  How lovely. We're trying to leave the flowers as long a possible for the bees.  We've got a bumper amount of 'mostra' on our olive trees, fingers crossed that translates into a good olive harvest.

Isn't it lovely to get up in the mornings, to sunshine, beautiful wild flowers, and listen to the bird song, around us.
Lovely to have the nightingales, bee eaters, and golden oriol back again.

Shouldn't think that there is much chance of the flies coming back until the weather finally decides to settle down and give us a prolonged period of sunshine.

Or water boatmen?
Hope everyone is O.K. and not got flooded, or any damage been done, today.
Won't need to water the garden for a while, anyway.
