Days in our garden series

At the beginning of the COVID-19 lockdown I started a Day in our garden series of posts with the intention of having something new each day. I did not expect it to last long and also expected there to be many gaps when I had nothing new. Lockdown was announced on March 23, and March 24 was the day I created the first post with photos from the day.

I have done the odd re-cap during the series when I had nothing new to write about or show photos of, and on some days, though I had nothing new, I have shared photos, taken during the day, of something seen before.

I will be editing this page as time goes on and adding each day to the list below. I will also try to have a one photo of each thing spotted during the series. The first photo of each thing spotted may not be the best – for example I might have posted a photo of a Rose bud but a photo of the whole bush in bloom might be a better photo. It looks as though there are 300+ photos taken during this series.
