    The sun has come out as the final pieces of the festival jigsaw are put into place.

    What an absolutely stunning backdrop. We think this year is going to be an absolute blast.

    @SocketedAxes @TullieHouse The Tullie Secret Garden has a juvenile or two "stranded" every year. It's parent will visit it and it will be OK. They are very noisy and the call is very poignant so it will tug at your heart strings!

    Finally! While the rest of the UK flowering season is well under way, it's taken until yesterday to see my first Early Purple Orchid of 2021 in #Shetland. Growing in a serpentine fell field, they're always tiny, but share their home with other special plants, like Moss Campion. https://t.co/GYBQp2nHwZ CumbriaBDC photo
