Spring is very nearly here, which means that buds are starting to show signs of change,
there is movement as soon there will be leaves and flowers; the wonderful Magnolia by the front gate is keeping its flowers tightly protected,
the equally wonderful Magnolia stellata in the back garden is also keeping its precious flowers under wraps,
and the willow by the pond is getting fuzzier.

From this fuzziness Spring will emerge, not that I am wishing my life away, but I am really looking forward to it.
