Like many people I was revelling in a beautiful weekend and spent much of it out in the garden. When the sun was shining it felt gloriously warm on my back and it was a tantalising taste of spring, maybe even summer!
Plenty of animals were also living it up. I saw several bumble bees, including a massive one buzzing around my shed that rather surprised me when I went in. I found a few caterpillars as I went about my weeding, which certainly seem like soft and delicate things to be out amidst the frosts. Identifying the green one above is left as an exercise for the reader - let me know what you reckon in the comments.
I also happened across a flat-backed millipede, below - though not exactly a harbinger of spring. See my previous blog post for more on them.
