A Glimpse of Spring

Rejoice! The clocks have gone forward and it’s going to be lighter this evening. However, it still feels too cold for this time of year, and I’m told we’re going to be plunged back into wintry weather next week. So I was anxious to get out for a walk this afternoon; I hope  these images will keep up my spirits on the journey to work in the morning!

I’ll be planting this soon: a small cowslip plant to replace the one that disappeared last year.  A wonderful fresh green, to offset the greys and browns which dominate the garden now.

Something to look forward to!
