I eventually got out today and was amazed to see the new spring beauty coming out of the awful weather we have had!
So taking some pictures, I wish to share them with you, for they really cheered me up!
At last we hope the snow may have gone.
I do hope that you enjoy these as much as I did seeing them!
Snowdrops growing wild!
Regards.
Neil.

They are wonderful, Neil.

They remind me of springs past when I lived in the north.

Thanks.

I am fighting a little case of envy here, we still have snow , but the sun did shine today, and I see some bare ground.
Thanks for the preview of spring to come. Smiling

Dear Sharon, thank you as they cheered me up, as well!
My friend gave me some pictures and his permission to use them of his 1702 cottage in Oxfordshire!
So I have put them on the "Have Your Say"' forum.
I love the English Quince trees outside; quince jelly, and jam, chutney, the list is endless to this sadly underused, and now getting much rarer fruit!
Regards and Hugs!
Neil.
p.s. I.D. quiz what is this? Taken today, and I am learning the camera slowly!

Dear gardengus, if there was anyway on the internet I could send you some spring weather and a warming bowl of your favourite soup over, i would!
Unfortunately, technology has not got that advanced yet!
Or I would be making scones and meringues for Sharon all day long, not that I would mind.
However Strawberries in February, sorry Sharon cannot help on that one!
It is wonderful to have you here on this cubit, and as I always say to everyone, if you need any hep and it is possible for me to do it, I will try!
Kindest Regards.
Neil.

Those seed pods....wisteria??
Hyacinth bean vine...no, they're black, plus they are a vine anyway.
Don't know for sure Neil, I'd have to see the shape and the branch or twig I think.

I thought of that too, GG, but my redbud pods are very dark, almost black.

Thought I had a photo of the pods, but not.

I was looking at the branches behind the pods, and the way the pods attached.

You have got the right Genus but not the right species!
