Although all the snow was beautiful and wonderful, we have been terribly excited to see it creeping away. After three months of looking at a white landscape, we were longing for colour and light. And here it is! The poor garden looks a little crushed and dried out, but with a bit (a lot!) of clearing and raking, I am uncovering all sorts of treasures emerging. It's so GOOD to be out again, woolly mitts exchanged for gardening gloves, breathing in fresh spring air.
And getting the first washes on the line. It's not really warm enough to dry things completely, but just that smell on clothes, well, it's heavenly.
My wellies have gone back into the cupboard and now the garden clogs stand on the mat.
There's enough light in the morning to make me at least think about getting up for an early morning wander...
Is it time to hang up the mittens and declare spring has arrived?
