Spring is on the way!

 They may not be as fantastic as the snowdrops we found last weekend at Dimminsdale Nature Reserve but at least I can see these in my garden any day.

 It's not just snowdrops brightening up the garden - polyanthus,which have tried to flower on and off all winter, are now getting properly intot heir stride.

 and crocus are starting to bloom
 the greenhouse is starting to fill up - with spring onions and brassicas which have over-wintered there
 sweet peas and tiny salad leaves

 and trays planted with broad beans and peas (the holly should deter mice)
 Out in the veg patch, the spinach is looking better for a few warm days

and I even found some lambs' lettuce growing weed-like among the strawberries.

These daffodils are what will really herald Spring in though - doesn't look like it will be all that long to wait...
