Shoots, buds and even flowers!

Looking out of a window this morning I spotted our first open crocus and so decided to have a wander round the garden to see what else I could find happening. The intention was to post one or two photos but in the end I took so many that I decided to post an album instead. There are lots and lots of signs that spring is just around the corner.



I've also sown some basil and coriander seeds and popped them in the indoor garden unit to try for some early herbs.

  8. This is one of my favoruite times of year, one foot still in winter the other in spring. I am envious of your snowdrop clumps, ours are more a scatter, but give them time!

  9. We have quite a few clumps of snowdrops now Janet - it's lovely when they all come out - I'm sure you'll soon have good clumps too.

  10. Sightings of early signs of spring must have put a smile in your face. Yes it is hard to choose which photo to put up when all are special. I must learn from you how to make an album.

  11. Hi Diana, It did make me smile. If you use Blogger (which you do) your photos are kept in Picasa I'll send you some instructions.
