On the basis that we do need something to look forward to and because it was a nice sunny day today I did some Gardening jobs. But while I was at it I noticed that Snowdrops are starting to do their thing as are the Acenits. Always bring a joy to my heart these little flowers, first to appear in spite of the cold and frost and the start of hope for better things in the Spring this year.

Yes we need something to look forward to - my daffys are emerging and, yesterday, I noticed a wild primrose starting to flower. We used to have hundreds around the hedgerows but we haven't see any since 2017.

Lots of things are appearing in my garden, in fact some of the summer/autumn things haven't actually died off yet

The primroses April 2017 - the last time we saw them is such profusion (just before Sandy, the last of our first goats, died). These used to start coming into flower from the end of October onwards!.

Yep, my Japanese quince has had buds and flowers since late November - but I think the frosts may have nipped them in the bud as it were :rolleyes::rolleyes:

Let's hope it recovers - ours got stopped in its' tracks with a late frost last year.
