Frogspawn and violets



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.

Happy Spring!

You are ahead of us. I keep hearing this 2 or 3 weeks late idea....I was counting on the leaves arriving the same week as our baby (Apr 26) but maybe the leaves (and the baby) will be late. :)

Wish I could find some frog spawn for my kids to see...

we found frog spawn in a puddle on the drive! Shetland is getting warmer and my spring flowers are trying to peek through!
