14 degrees good-bye winter?

Sunday and today have seen a big leap in sunshine and temperature. Spring is now warm enough for the first visits down the garden of the Brimestone butterfly - ( unfortunately to quick for me to photograph). They are also accompanied by basking Peacock Butterflies interested in nothing more than a spot of sun bathing. Bees are here to, on the hunt for nectar rich plants and catkins, but as yet there isn't too much in flower to feed on. In our garden the Sallows always provide early spring blossom but will not be in full flower for another week yet.
