One of the things that makes me really happy is the coming of spring.
A sure sign of spring is the arrival of frogs in the garden pond. They usually arrive around St Valentine’s Day and sure enough that is when the first ones appeared. Yesterday’s count was about 100!
At this point we also have the first spawn.
Thirdly this week are the crocuses. Despite all the rain they are coming through.
Flowers are just such bundles of joy. Here mini daffodils also coming out.
Even the first leaves are emerging – here some native honeysuckle and a great tit. The bird song is another sure sign of spring.
It is very wet though. We have had constant rain and everything is muddy. Garden jobs are well behind as it is just to wet too work the soil.
