Signs of Spring?

All around the northern hemisphere, bloggers are showing some lovely spring-like photos. Obviously the winner for me has to be a Californian blogger who was picking the new-flowering Bird of Paradise flowers for her home, but here are a few early spring images from southern France. We aren't on the Med, and we do have frosts and a bit of snow.

I planted a few snowdrop bulbs in the autumn, without much hope, but I do have ONE snowdrop!

Both of the photos above are from my shady log-garden.

This is Ben's area - the front garden.

Son 2 picked me these willow buds from a fallen tree yesterday. I think they make the fabric rose behind them (which I wore in my hair for my sister's wedding last summer) look so fake - I'm going to need to get back to fresh flowers once spring really starts and the daffodils are out in the garden.

And the boys have a French friend visiting, so we ate Silver Dollar pancakes this afternoon... Yum.

Floss, how great to live in France! Loved your comment, thanks for visiting. As a California based webshop, I love everything French!

I love spring welcome after the cold winter. I'm longing to get out in the garden ! ;-)
