An abandoned and neglected pot in my courtyard is suddenly showing signs of life - a promise of colour to come. I think these are a few bulbs of tête-à-tête - and are much better re-potted and brought in to the house.

Some new shoots seem entirely appropriate for this time of year, when we're all busy making plans and setting our intentions for the months to come.

can't believe spring feels like it is just around the corner, snowdrops first to look forward to!

Lovely. Makes me think of spring days and warm sunshine to come - very uplifting.

Those little green shoots are so hopeful! This time of year always seems to pass so slowly for me, but these prove that Spring is coming.
