Spring is Springing.

The garden is slowly coming back to life. It seems that for the past few months the only colour has been from evergreen plants and bright berries. Now, everywhere I look there is new life bursting from the ground. The garden has been hibernating!

A few photographs from my garden. I do hope that the snow and frost has passed now! Roll on flip flop weather! Not long until the daffodils and tulips start to bloom. There are already buds on the daffodils but the tulips will probably be at least another month. There are red and pink tulips planted in the garden and they still flower even though they have been there for about 10 years.  

Every time I go to the supermarket I am so tempted by all the lovely bulbs on sale. I have already bought a pot of mini daffodils and one of snowdrops! The problem is finding space in the garden to plant them afterwards. Especially as I am trying to make room for salads and vegetables. I would like some English bluebells though as they would look lovely under the silver birch tree. 

I need to get out into the garden and get the weeding done! Soon it will still be light enough when I get home from work as now I try and fit everything into my weekends. 

I love Spring! The time of year when Spring moves into Summer is my favourite. 

I am looking forward to ....

trips to the beach and it being warm enough to paddle in the sea. 
picnics with a big blanket, lovely food and a good book.
lying back in a field and cloud watching.
long, light evenings. 

What are you looking forward to about the better weather?
