    Spring Has sprung

    Its official, the frogs are having their annual orgy, most of the crocus's and snowdrops are in full bloom, the roses and just about everything else is budding.

    But still a harsh cold wind out there..!

    Bring on the sunshine!

    The weather here has been quite freaky, I think we have had everything except a Tornado!!!!

    But, my snowdrops have been out for a couple of weeks now, also an African Violet is already flowering. The shrubs are budding and the grass is desperate for a trim.

    Spring is my favourite season. I love watching everything coming back to life.
    What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

    My little plot is coming along nicely. My housing association have removed a couple of old rose bushes that did nothing and I have planted 2 new ones. It took me 4 weeks to dig the holes but I got there in the end! Bulbs are coming up - lots of daffs now although quite a few have been lost due to the area being dug up. I have plans for what else is going in there but have to do it bit by bit. Going to a garden centre today hopefully so may buy some plants
