As mentioned in a
previous blog I’m not a winter person and could easily hibernate for most of
it, only stepping outside when absolutely necessary. This morning however I was
quite pleased to be out, it was cold but the sunshine was gorgeous and the sky
was a beautiful shade of blue with not a cloud in sight. As I was walking to the shop I thought how nice my neighbour's ornamental crabapple
tree looked with that blue sky in the background. If I had been out and about
more regularly I would have noticed it when it had more fruit on it but the
birds have been feasting on it, which is good. Each garden I passed showed
signs of spring with small clusters of shoots emerging from their winter beds.
Back in my own garden
these lovely tete a tete daffodils will soon be in bloom. The pretty
little cyclamens have been blooming all winter.
