We've made it to the end of February and there seems to be a different feel in the air. A couple of degrees higher on the thermometer, a bit of sunshine and signs of new growth in the garden goes a long way to improve our mood.
Here are my six:
|For me, after snowdrops and crocuses the flowering blackcurrant heralds the Spring|
|Garlic making good growth, although the pesky squirrels have had a good root around|
|I am determined not to lose my lupins this year, hence the collars from plastic lemonade bottles|
|The Bellis in containers have sprung back to life after the frosts and snow. They usually carry on flowering for months.|
|Black Grass (Ophiopogon planiscapus Nigrescens) is spreading well|
|This is a picture of the frogs and frogspawn in the pond. I counted more than seven large frogs all being very active|

Stay well and focus on that chink of light at the end of the tunnel
