Happy Spring! (although it may not quite feel like Spring in many places).
Today is the first day of spring - known as the ‘Vernal Equinox’. The equinox occurs twice a year, once in March and once in September. On the equinox, night and day are nearly the exact same 12-hour length around the world.
Here's what Spring is looking like in my garden.... (no daffodils flowering yet)...
|Once again... I'm snapping photos of Spring bulbs. There isn't much interest in the garden other than the crocus and snowdrops at the minute and they bring much appreciated splashes of colour in clumps and drifts.|

My favourite Spring quote:
"There are no rules in a cottage garden." (Alan Titchmarsh)
Just the way I like to garden!
