There is so much to see in the garden just now, even if mine is very small.

And more and more flowers on my Daphne. DaphneThe only disappointment being that I had expected more fragrance.

My Lenten Roses have come forth in abundance. Lenten Roses

and a first bud on the rose bush. rose bud

There is also the hum of bees though I didn’t manage to capture one.
