We finally have frogspawn in our little pond. Looking back over previous years, I have posted about the appearance of frogspawn at the end of February. If this is a measure of spring, then it is about three weeks later than usual.
The spring flowers are appearing though and I was pleased that on this first day of Spring, violets are flowering in the hedgerows.
They are such delicate flowers with a lovely scent. When I saw these today I began to believe that winter is over at last.
