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.


  1. Dear I love seeing all the buds and flowers which are slowly unfurling. My prunus Kojo-no-mai is in flower (albeit a little tentatively) which is a joy!
    Spring in on the way...
    Best wishes

  2. This is shamefacedly a copy and paste comment. (I'm doing a last minute rush around to people who might be interested.)

    Have you thought about following a tree with Loose and Leafy this year? There's information here http://tinyurl.com/bv6pzt5 and a Link Box tomorrow (7th March).


  3. Awesome post and thank you for sharing

  4. There are signs of spring everywhere at the moment, it's such an exciting time of year, spring is nearly with us!

  5. Great! Have added you to the Tree Following list http://tinyurl.com/bv6pzt5 and look forward to reading about your quince.

  6. I am eyeing my stellata buds every day now for the first signs of white breaking out! Such a wonderful time of year.
