... and after a long damp month, with much less sunshine than usual, we have finally hap a couple of dry days and today has been wonderfully sunny, if cold.
In fact cold seems to be dominating the forecast for the next week or so. The winter started mildly, but it seems to be dragging out with this late cold spell. There is little real movement in the garden and the hedgerows, so it seems the plants are going to be late starting this spring.
Having said that, the winter pansies (left) look well in the sunshine, and the rosemary (above) is covered in pale blue flowers.
There has been quite a bit of wind over the last couple of days which has helped to dry things up a it, and I was able to get out and give the grass its first mow of the season this afternoon - a little later than it often is on account of the very wet month we've had.
