Spring has finally sprung

Pottering around in the garden today, I noticed a couple of things that were worthy of a photo, and signify that spring most definitely has sprung. The sightings of frogs ‘doing their thing’ all around the garden must be coming to an end – we now have frogspawn. The clever things have hidden it in the most sheltered part of the pond, so hopefully it won’t become an easy lunch for the fish.

And it’s not just the wildlife that’s springing into action. The Viburnum is flowering…

So is the Berberis:

And the Acer is starting to bud

And last, but not least, the purple sprouting broccolli looks like it will be ready to start picking very soon – I hope we like it, as there appears to be loads of sprouts on their way…

Hurray for spring!
