These brave crocuses are not the only flowers in our garden. We've got some snowdrops too.
After last summer's drought conditions, our wet coast weather seems to be back to normal.
This winter has been warm and moist so far, and the flowers are loving it. Clematis buds are in evidence, daffodil shoots are reaching 6" in places, and lots of other greenery is sprouting.
Let's hope the Groundhog didn't take fright when he saw his shadow last Tuesday. That would mean more wintry weather coming, leaving these posies, as well as the early cherry blossoms seen elsewhere, very vulnerable.
