First Signs Of Spring

After we had almost 10 days of snow laying on the ground the Spring bulbs were very much on hold. But over the past week the temperatures have been up to 10 degrees C and the garden is making up for lost time.

First as always to burst into flower signalling the end of winter is the snowdrops. And this year they seem particularly prolific, even groups that we've dug up, split and spread out in other places seem to have grown well and are covered in white bell like flowers.

And it's not just us, they are flowering well in other peoples gardens too, and even appearing on grass verges and the Loch side where I've never noticed them before.

Such a welcome sight.
