Hello, again, Shirley. I have just been reading your diary for April and I am struck, as usual, by the similarities between our weather in Norwich and yours in Holland. I suppose we are only a few miles apart. But still, I am surprised that we seem to get the same weather fronts. It's cool and showery here. Things are slow to get off the ground in the garden. My main interest, at the moment, is my pond which though small has a huge tadpole population which is being predated by spawning smooth newts. I've seen both adults and yearling newts taking one or two at a time. It's love and war in there at the moment!
