A Spring Glow

I am dedicating this post to all my blogging friends suffering from a bitter cold and extremely long and persistent winter.

(i.e. in North America/Canada)

I know how you feel, as last year we had a very long and extremely grey winter – my vitamin D levels must have been down to zero by the time we finally got a sunny day!


Here are some sunshiny Narcissi with their cheerful faces, and a visitor… can you see her?


And Hepatica nobilis ‘White Forest’, a dazzling beauty reflecting light for you like a tiny beacon…


And finally here are the fat pink buds of the flowering currant, Ribes sanguineum. Full of hope and optimism, these will be the main attraction for the bees very soon.


Hope it warms up for you soon!
