I have been taking some photos in and around the garden this week and I think Spring is definitely on its way.
The pictures of the birds and the squirrel were taken from indoors so they are not a wonderful quality. Click on each picture for more detail.
One of the squirrels that visit sitting in the maple tree - lots of buds forming there.
A blackbird and a long-tailed tit in the same tree.
Bathtime for a blue tit
and this great tit has found a peanut
Mr B enjoying a piece of apple.
The birds seem to be pairing off already and there are a few ruffled feathers out there as they argue about territory!
The fern has stayed this bright colour all winter - new shoots beneath I think.
The hellebore is struggling to flower in spite of the cold weather.
and finally, the snowdrops are now fully out - lovely!
No, it won't be long now.
