A Sign of Spring - 2008

Winter aconite


Japan cherry

I met some of the first signs of spring on a very grey January day. Winter hasn't arrived - yet February might have a cold period - but the days are longer now and spring isn't that far away. In between this 'all too much rain' the sun is showing its pretty face for a few hours. In spite of the mild air the birds were silent today ...........but then you meet those lovely little flowers on such a dark grey day - and they bring back the optimism and the expectation of the next lovely spring and summer.
