On day 301 of 365 Days Wild I spent some time with the blackthorn hedge in the Nature Project that is now covered in blossom.
Not only are the blossoms beautiful, they are also a draw to wildlife. The stretch of hedge was covered in honey bees; the air was filled with their hum.
There were also lots of 7-spot ladybirds.
A comma butterfly also landed on a blossom covered branch beside me as I watched.
And a peacock butterfly settled to bask in the leaf litter by my feet.
Is the blackthorn in flower where you are? Let me know in the comments below.
