Waiting for spring
Could there be a hint of spring in the air?
I think these ducks still need some convincing!
Although there is still some ice lying around, emerging buds are appearing on the branches.
And the sky is very blue and for once that bitterly cold wind is absent.
Can you hear the birds singing and smell the new growth?
I discovered the first cow parsley in flower in a sheltered spot!
Back in the garden the daffodils and grape hyacinths have recovered from the cold.
This weekend we managed to get into the garden and sort out the vegetable beds. We also picked our second crop of rhubarb - the terracotta rhubarb forcer works so well - elsewhere in the garden the rhubarb leaves are only just emerging.
I hope you found promising signs of spring/autumn this weekend too! I know we British are notorious about talking about the weather, but it seems such a long winter!
Welcome to my new followers Sarah, Anne, Seagull Suzie, Roberta, CJ Quilter, Wandering Minstrel, and Arietia it's lovely to have you all on board!
