SOUTHSEA GREEN: Blossom on every tree

It might be spring but we could still get frosts like this one shot on Butser Hill by reader Mark Edgehill

BRIAN KIDD: The fogs of March point to the frosts of May: were you counting?

The blackbird is one of the most common birds in the UK

Have your say

It must be spring: there are people coming up the garden path without coats and there’s blossom on every tree.

Green shoots are poking through the earth and shaking out their new leaves .

We had that lovely thing where a man/woman comes into the garden and offers to help.

It always makes me smile, especially as only six months ago we were left, just a few of us, with a huge garden to tend and a portable building with a leaky roof. It just goes to show that perseverence is a blessing and when you toss a pebble into a pond, it will ripple for a little before calm returns.

There has been coffee in Greens with friends from Keep Milton Green and making plans to extend our #keeppompeygreen exhibition. Big thanks to Tesco Fratton for offering space in their giant store and a monthly best green photo for their community room.
We’re in the garden Tuesday afternoons and Wednesday mornings and every first Saturday of the month. Our adopt-a-plotters will be there, but they’re terribly shy so do say hello.
