Here's a sight that cheered me up after the rather grey few days we have had recently. Owing to the rather unpredictable winter we have had (mild, snow, freezing temperatures, spring-like temperatures, cold), I wasn't sure whether these daffodils had survived at all. This pot is outside the front door and has had no extra protection during the winter. (I also needed a few subjects for my new camera too). Nature shows how amazing she is again, as the cheerful yellow flowers unfurl.
One of just a few double snowdrops in the garden looking rather gorgeous too. Excuse my rather wrinkled fingers as I hadn't put any hand cream on before braving the cold.
Another cheerful face of a viola, planted at the top of a tulip pot. I did notice tulip leaves starting to push through, so that is encouraging. I am desperate to get out into the garden; to prune the clematis, buddleia and roses and to tidy up the borders. I notice new things every time I venture out and this gives me a feeling of optimism that spring is on the way.
