spring reflections


I’m distracted, in a nice way, by family including a daughter visiting from out-of-town this week. It was unexpectedly sunny today so we went for a walk to check for signs of spring. Here and there the green shoots of daffodils are several inches high. In my garden, the ever-faithful snowdrops have been blooming since Christmas and the hellebore has been opening its delicate blooms lately. In the park the English daisies are blooming on the lawns. Such a difference from the Interior where it’s snowing heavily! Daughter mentioned missing the sea here though she loves the snow at her home.

As I’m writing this, I looked at last year’s post about early spring to compare the flowers in my garden then. This year the crocus hasn’t yet made its appearance in my garden, not enough sun!

Now a mystery question for you – what is the image below?
