The emergence of overwintering butterflies to bask in warming sunshine is one of my favourite signs of Spring. You can see it on the cliff above Nanjizal in the video.
The second wild orchid collage in nearing completion, but to fix the glue last thing in the day is always rash as I shall come to the piece with a fresh eye in the morning and may well make crucial alterations.
