Is it Spring?

Well, the flowers and animals seem to think so! The birds are singing, the bees are out buzzing and the wildflowers have burst into a riot of colour. It’s still rather early so we are hoping that they have got it right and that winter does not have a sting in the tail.

Today it has been 18° C and we have both caught the sun whilst working in the garden (well bog mostly, but I’m sure it will dry out quickly). I spotted these little guys (or girls) and just could not resist trying to capture them (photographically). Click on the picture to get a bigger view.
