We had a beautiful day, here in the North East of Scotland, albeit still bitterly cold. The sun shone, there was no wind, (I hate the wind.) birds singing. So I went outside to check whether the garden was feeling Spring like.
These tiny Daffodills, dont know their name, but really short stemmed, always the first up.
With loads more in bud.
The big boys too in bud, and I think these are the ones with the most heavenly smell. I may well pick some and bring them indoors and hope they will open a wee bit earlier.
What did surprise me was the Rogersii shoving up through the soil. This is one big leaved giant of a plant, a bit like Gunnera (think big rhubarb).
Ornamental Poppy lots of new leaves, need to get rid of dead stalks...
You might have to hit on the picture, but my new Rambling Rector has buds!!! It has survived.
Today's blue skies.
Guillemot sleeping in the sun.
And a wee bit o Doric to get me into the mood for next week's Kids Activity Mornings with a Pirate theme.
It is Spring, it is Spring.....repeat after me......
