After untold snow and ice, winter finally left and we had nearly two weeks of mild weather. Then the cold winds started and rain with it for what seems an age now. Unable to go out and do anything. I vowed that the first dry day we have, I would go out and get some pictures. That day was today and it was surprising to say the least. Snowdrops, still out with Magnolia, are just about to go into full flower. What a strange spring!

|Dear Sharon, I am most pleased that in some way it might have cheered you up!|
I have two members from Milwaukee, Wisc, and they seem to have been having a rough time there. So although for us we did have a bad winter I know it gives them some pleasure to see the spring flowers of England, although they are not at there best yet!
Kindest Regards from England.
Some pictures I got this morning.
Snowdrops and some Primroses with a red Acer (Japanese maple) in the foreground.
Blue Polyanthus and a creamy yellow one!
Pink Hyacinths and white Crocus.
Red Tulips and a yellow and red one.
Yellow Tulips and Blue Hyacinths, with a pink one!
Beautiful Crocus and white Hyacinths.
Pheasant eye narcissus, and a stunning Tulip!
There will be more tomorrow that I have taken today!
