Often called fair maids of February, this little clump of snowdrops opened in my south facing back garden at some point over the weekend. We have been visiting North Devon and it was a joy to return to these little fellows.
I was inspired by a gap in the rain clouds to go and dredge some debris out of my pond, as my first spring clearance of the year. Down in North Devon I saw frogspawn in MIL’s pond, and guess it wont be too long before the frogs are busy here too. There was definite forwardness to the season there. Wild daffodils were in flower and there were plenty of tiny lambs, although goodness only knows how they will fare in this deluging spell we are in. I know they can cope with some degree of cold, but endless rain is probably not too good for a new lamb.
