4th May 2023 – Chew Valley, North Somerset

The last few days we have been making the most of the opportunity to savour spring in the countryside as the weather forecast is not very encouraging.

This morning we visited the Yeo Valley Organic Garden in Chew Valley, a favourite of ours.

The meadow of leichtlinii camassia is definitely the star attraction at this time of the year

The tulips are just past their best but still make a fabulous display

I love this display of euphorbias by the main house

Bird of Paradise in the hot house – outside there were very vociferous willow warblers

This new water feature caught my eye too.

On the way home we stopped briefly at Chew Valley lake where I had my first view of swifts and House Martins – hopefully summer is on its way.

My first common swift of the summer
