As you know, Mr Stoatie always says it isn’t Spring until the bread and cheese is out on the hedgerows, so I was a bit concerned to find some just starting to burst out when I was walking the dogs this morning. It seems much too early!
I also spotted crocus and lungwort in flower, and the leaves on the flowering blackcurrant and the forsythia are well out. It’s been such a wet and mild winter so far and everything is a bit ahead of itself. I’m wondering if we will get a cold snap at all, I’ve only had to scrape ice off the car twice so far!
