|Aphids on blackberry shoots. Nikon D7000|
Although the weather has been cold recently, the rain has not visited for a while and the sun has come out on odd days.
The slight warming of the air temperature during the day has been enough for the Blackberry to start to put out small shoots of new growth.
The Aphid population also seems to have started to hatch unfortunately. There are two here on this shoot; hopefully the birds will have spotted them as well.
