Yes it is in full bloom, with leaves just starting and the insect activity is huge. Several waxeyes (you can see I am a South Islander as North Islanders call them silver eyes) and a couple of fantails, the odd bee. Lovely to stay near it for a while.
The worms are back well and truly. Perhaps it was stopping the artificial fertilisers, together with feeding with rock dust and other nutrients, but it is good these days to plant herbs or alyssym under the fruit trees as I always enjoy the fat worms which seem to thrive there.
