Many of our spring flowers are showing off, and there is so much to appreciate that is growing and green. I love seeing so many verges and small areas that have not be mown, the wild plants are blooming and the insects are thriving. If you can, try to take a short walk every day, it would be a shame if the plants were showing off for nothing (the bees may take a different view).
So many people are sharing beautiful local photographs on local Facebook sites, why not join an on-line Facebook group and see them, Please Visit Rhondda Our Valley
Keep safe and keep well.
