It's very refreshing to see signs of Spring. We have just one Camellia flower on our tiny patio, plus a few rather straggly Wallflowers.
The Daffs have been flowering for a while (folk have even been picking them), but now their leaves are bursting from the ground as well.
When I took this photo yesterday morning, a Blackbird was singing its heart out. I sat on a gravestone and listened for about 10 minutes. I also heard either a Woodpecker or a Nuthatch tapping away. Beautiful.
The Snowdrops are also flowering. These (below) seem to be a rather discreet variety, but very welcome all the same.
I'm perfectly aware that 'One Daff does not a Spring make', but any sign of re-birth lifts the spirits, and gives hope.
