Early spring?

The garden was full of birds of all sorts today (much to the irritation of the cat, who took the pigeon invasion very personally). It is a shame that the RSPB's Birdwatch is next weekend... when it will probably rain and all the birds will stay home.

Not only outside was spring in evidence, the ladybugs were waking up from their winter sleep wherever it is they sleep. I was sitting on the bed minding my own business when one dive-bombed me. I put it out the window (much against its will) but better outside than being eaten by a cat!
