At first sight it appears that seeing the garden at this time of year is all about the bare bones of the structure- the leafless trees, the shapes of the remaining seed heads and grasses with the colours coming in from the dogwoods and the conifers. Is it me or do those grasses look just like ostrich plumes?!
Despite Spring officially beginning on 21st March thankfully Nature disregards the human obsession with calendars and time and if you looked carefully the signs were there.
And as for the Snowdrops....why yes. Many still haven't bloomed but will put on a dazzling display in the next couple of weeks. The beautifully marked Snowflakes were also out.
It was good to see the wheel turning as the days lengthen once again.
