Signs of Spring 1

OK, so it was raining and we're expecting the mother of all storms tonight/tomorrow, but the sight of the Blackthorn in bloom at the side of the house still stopped me in my tracks yesterday.


  1. That's always a lovely sight!
    It's been dry with some sunshine here, so I made the most of it and spent a couple of hours on the plot.
    Have a good week, and don't get blown away!

  2. Today down here in Sussex by the Sea, has been the nicest day of the year so far. We did have some thundery showers, but plenty of sunshine too, even a couple of rainbows. Managed to get lots done in the garden. x

  3. Blackthorn blossoms are lovely! Can't wait for something -- anything!! -- to bloom here.

  4. Flighty - sounds like you made good progress there!

    Louise - glad you've had a good day, hope it wasn't too bad overnight though.

    Your eg tour guide - hello again! I can see from your site you're a very long suffering Canadian this winter!

  5. I must be desperate if my signs of spring are plant sprouts & bulb buds, while yours are glorious white tree blossoms.

  6. Mr McGregor's Daughter - Let's hope winter soon starts clearing away over on your side of the pond.
