With much of the UK having been stricken with floods during early 2014, it may be hard to imagine summer in full-swing but the weather is on the upturn. Spring is here and its time to get out there!
I’ve been getting more daring, even attempted a walk in the woods for an Easter egg hunt, but I’ve have been thinking what a battering the garden’s taken over the winter months.
The dash across the ‘lawn’ which had become a Glastonbury style mud fest, to dive in the shed to grab materials had to be done in about five, trousers rolled up, tip toe like steps, in a monster like fashion. Then back one final leap back to the safety of the astro turf. Such a good alternative to homegrown turf.
Well fingers crossed, I’m not exclaiming its warm enough to take your overcoat off but I do believe Spring has definitely sprung! Here’s some images showing the signs of spring.
