Signs of Spring – Buds and Snowdrops – and Storms

06 Feb

There has been a lull in the rain and the storms this afternoon so I went hunting in our garden. I could see the Snowdrops and the Tete a Tete from the house but was delighted to find shoots on the Clematis and a Crocus in bud, hiding low down in the border. Click on the photos for a bigger picture.

Spring is on the way but we have some more storms to weather before we can relax.  Click on the red for the really rather frightening forecast.
Thank you to all those who have enquired after our safety in this exceptionally wild weather. We are on a hill and 10 minutes from the coast so are safe from the waves that have caused such devastation elsewhere. The damage at Dawlish in Devon, to the one train-line that connects us to England will take weeks to sort out but Cornwall is not shut! Here and here are some pictures for those of you who would like to see what has been happening in the South West of England.
