The trees are bare and there is snow threatened in the forecast…not to mention that any snow will then be followed by heavy rain and gale force winds – again.
We are fooled into thinking that spring is on the way only to have our hopes dashed. But wait is that the signs of some leaves on this lone tree…well take a closer look…
Only tiny shoots bursting from the safety of the winters buds…but it is a start.
There are of course the more familiar early risers of Spring…. Daffodils, Winter Heather and the first of the Blossoms.
We do have a weekend visitor in the name of Storm Jorge heading our way, so lets see what he has packed into his suitcase to empty over us.
