Turning Over Old Leaves

This was the first day of gardening in 2012. The unseasonable, and slightly worrying, warmth brought me out of hibernation.  So I pruned, and chopped and cleared while hoping my actions weren't killing off any still hibernating insect.  Luckily for those left behind any further disruption was brought to a halt when the green bin became full.  The volume of a recycling bin measured out my first visit to the garden.

To be honest it is so early in the year that Nature is still asleep. I uncovered a worm, and saw a couple of blue tits, but the usual robin didn't appear and the skies were quiet.  My only companion was a bold fly:
