Not far from where I live, the road that is the main entry to Southampton from the north – The Avenue, splits into two separate carriageways and in the middle is an area of grass and trees.
The other day I crossed a little before the crossing and there in the grass I found a little clump of purple crocus and I knew that Spring was on its way.
In my garden too there are crocuses: yellow ones this time.
And a yellow tulip in a ceramic pot.
I was pleased to find more than one snowdrop.
The leucojum have been out for a while.
They are easy to see from the window.
The pulmonaria too is flowering.
And out the front, the daffodils I photographed in the snow
are now beginning to flower.
Yes! Spring is on the way.
