The first signs of Spring?

                        

Hello, Stuart and I are just in from a long Sunday walk. It is a very mild morning with no wind.  Other than the usual hip problem I really enjoyed it. We met a friend out walking his two West Highland Terrier so we had a rare natter as we walked along. On the way back after we left our friend I saw the first Snowdrops of the winter. There was also about 4 Crocus out in the same Garden.  It is always very heart warming to see the very first sign of thing coming back to life.  With the weather forecast for snow this week I suppose everything will go back to sleep again for another little while.  So sad that the Bottled Nosed Whale died but that always seems to be the case when they come inshore. Did anyone else watch Rosemary and Thyme last night. I love that program as it is so beautifully mad.  the weather is always sunny and the gardens are always delightful. I know its a murder thing but there is never any blood and gore.  The acting is so good and there is never any bad language I just sit back and enjoy. So with that I will leave you to the rest of your Sunday and go and make some lunch.  Love

How lovely to see the snowdrops, such beautiful delicate flowers.  Have not seen any signs of spring here yet and as you say it is forecast to become much colder as this new week progresses.
No, did not see Rosemary and Thyme. Have watched it in the past and agree it is nice to see something without continual swearing and explicit violence.

Hi Joan, isn`t it lovely to see those early winter flowers fighting their way through?  They are forecasting really cold weather this week as you say, so I suppose it`s back to square one!  The journey back to the sea must have been too traumatic for the whale to cope with.  It`s very sad all the same.

how lucky for you to see the snowdrops already. I think it will be march before we see them here, but we are having a very mild winter so you never know. I have never in my life seen them before March though. Sandra

Don't watch Rosemary and Thyme but did find a new series yesterday called 'Surface', we got well engrossed and even watched the next episode on itv2 straight after!!! Love the flowers.

When we lived in Massachusetts I could not wait till March and see that first Crocus, but here in Arizona, there is no cold winter.  Sorry about the whale, but it had to be sick to come in so close to land.   Enjoy the rest of your day.   Dawn

Hi Joan, saw a bank of snowdrops and celandines yesterday - typical - hadn't got my camera with me. It was a beautiful sight. A sure sign that whatever the weather throws at us now, we are heading for Spring. Take care.

I don't think I'm ready for Spring yet.  We just had a snow the other day, and I'm still kind of enjoying the cold.  (Call me crazy, I know!)

I have things growing in my garden, just starting to poke above the soil, lol, I haven't a clue what they are though ;o)  Am so not good at plants and stuff!!!

Hope you had a lovely day :-)  It certainly is getting colder!!  I like the flowers in the pic.  You'll have to forgive me I'm useless with flower's names!!

Flowers budding already?  It gives you hope that spring will be here soon.
