Usually my blog features pictures of handsome me. But today I thought you might like to see some pictures suggesting that Spring may actually have Sprung around here. The frosts seem to have gone away again and today is windy but warmer. I know some of my friends in far-away places are still up to their tails in snow, so maybe you would like to take a tour and see how my garden is looking today?
Let's start at the front gate. On top of the wall by the front gate there are some crocuses out.
Near the front gate there are some winter hellebores and winter jasmine still flowering.
On either side of the front door there is a pot that looks like this:
Meanwhile in the back garden it is starting to look more spring-like. Let's walk down to the bottom of the garden. By the back fence the quince has blossom on it. Last year my mum made quince jelly for the first time. You can see the roof of our neighbour's house behind. My dad's rhubarb plant is looking quite healthy. Maybe in a few months my humans will be eating rhubarb and custard! (I love custard). The first daffodils are in flower in the back garden. But there are lots more only in bud, not out yet. And more crocuses not out yet. My mum has some pots of bulbs on the patio where we can see them out of the window. There are more crocuses, hyacinths, etc. I like looking at them but I wouldn't go outside today because it was too windy and my fur was getting blown about and untidy. I'm going to make an official declaration - in our garden, Spring has finally Sprung!
