Is spring around the corner?

2011.03.03

Today has been another sunny one, if a little chilly, and it has really felt like spring is just around the corner. I had ten minutes to spare between pupils this afternoon so, given the choice between a cuppa and taking some photos, I decided to make the most of the warm sunshine and get my camera out. Back in the autumn I planted some bulbs in our window box which are flowering now (the smell from the hyacinths has to be sniffed to believed!) and I couldn’t resist the beautiful purples and yellows of the crocuses in the late afternoon sun.

Latecomer Autumn is just around our corner, after the summer that wasn't. If the weather doesn't dry up for a few weeks there won't be much leaf colour either. Boo Hoo! Your shot is beautiful.
