Spring Starts.

There it was again,

It had been missing for so long.

The morning was still dark,

The sun still to rise,

But there it was again,

That first sign of spring.

The wonderful song of the robin

Heralding natures symphony

To start this beautiful day.

    Magic to hear - and in the garden we have crocuses, hellebores, iris, pansies, skimmia, viburnum, cyclamen, and a bank of snowdrops all flowering away . In town there are daffs in bloom. Spring is truly on its way.

              Did they have Spring in 1066, or was it cancelled?!

              • Goldfinch60

                Couldn’t see it for the arrows.
