several signs of spring

The weather is warming up although the wind still has a bit of a nip to it. We have one teeny little snowdrop ( I planted loads).


The crocuses that began to flower really early are now fully out


The ones that kept getting trampled by heavy footed pigeons have done better than I thought they would.


The garlic is sprouting


And there is one anenome


The potatoes have began to chit

















I have had ye olde chocolate shoppe waiting to be finished for ages. So I decided it was time to choose the fabric and get on with it.









Tia has been investigating

and sitting









Thank you for the comments didn't realise I knew so many Angelas!

Love seeing the flowers starting. It rained this week so most of our snow is gone but our poor garden looks sad. The ground is too mushy to walk on yet so I can't get out there and potter about yet. I'm determined this year to get an early start...ha ha:)

Lovely pics. I too have a few crocus and early daffs. and leaves are bursting out on other shrubs. Not sure about veggi garden this year, don't think I will be able to to dig it over. Can I hire John for a couple of weeks?
Weather is mild but so windy its "lost in translation"

Great job on your banner!
