Signs of SPRING

It certainly feels springy out there – it’s 12 C in February!

The birds are quite chirpy and there are FLOWERS in bloom!

Snowdrops (common or otherwise) always lift your heart.

My Hamamelis has been flowering for weeks – it’s also faintly scented.

Winter aconites are a good source of food for bees and cheery with their yellow flowers.

Hellebores come in a variety of colours – here a white one and a purple one about to open up.

I just hope that the animals and plants don’t get too much of a shock when we get the next frost.
