We are all buying into Hope .. this time of year you have to believe it is all going to warm up, get light and grow.  So we look at the plants and consider the pots and buy the seeds and make the plans ... Hope.   :)

My garden has been blooming over the last two months or so. The flowering quince was out in November and the hellebores started just after Christmas before the snowdrops came up. Now my crocuses are starting to flower.
I don't like bananas unless it's raining. (A quote from my great-niece).

Mine has Hellebores, snowdrops,crocus and daffodils out and even the frogs have spawned.  I have heard it described as a false spring, too much to hope that is not so I suppose

I've got snowdrops, crocus, primulas and vinca out, the japonica is heavily budded and the hyacinths are showing strongly.  The blue tits are prospecting nesting locations and the birds are generally coming into mating colours.  I really hope they are all not going to get a nasty shock.  Remember the Beast from the East at the end of Feb last year?

  Saw my first big bumblebee this afternoon. Then a pair of bullfinch and a hoverfly. Brimstone butterflies generally appear in February as well. There is a lovely wild bit i walk where they seem to frequent . Maybe this weekend. They are stunning. Ooh I'm getting excited ( feverishly rubbing my thighs ) haha
