After seeing my spring flowers starting to emerge, I checked back on last year’s posts to see how spring was progressing a year ago. I have a picture from 19 April, where there’s some patchy snow left on the field. So just for comparison, here’s a picture of the same field (just a bit different part of it) today.
I’ve been so wrapped up in talking about the weird winter that I’ve completely forgotten that we’re heading into spring. Seeing the flower shoots and now looking back at old pictures, I suddenly realised that it is indeed time to start waiting for the greens. Of course a lot depends on what the temperatures will be like in April and May (it could easily start snowing again and we’ll end up with half a meter of snow) but spring is definitely in the air now!
