Spring is showing its good intentions. These mini blue Irises have just popped up.
As have most of the Daffs.
But the most encouraging sign that Spring is in the air are the Toads on the pool cover. They arrive every year and, if allowed, produce long lines of black spotted Toad Spawn. I have already removed them, plus another single male, to a nearby pond.
Before long there'll be Pussy Willow, birds nests, purple sprouting Broccoli, and Cuckoos. I can feel the blood rising, and I like it..
