The early emerging flowers of snowdrops and crocus are now out in the garden. I love to see them – it’s a sign that winter is on the way out, the days are getting longer and Spring is not far away. I had a quick check of the ponds this evening and sure enough, there were frogs croaking away. Not many of them, and no toads – so it’s not full steam on the spawning just yet, and probably for the best.
I have no doubt whatsoever that we will yet see a very cold snap before Winter subsides. We have had snow in April recently so there is a long way to go yet.. You heard it here first! 😉
