This suggests that spring will one day return. Needed the reminder today, wall to wall wind and rain.


  1. How wonderful to see the green things growing there and signs of new life popping out of the dirt in the pots. Thank you so much! I needed it today too!

  2. awww...there peeking their lil heads out of the soil...the only thing to do on a rainy day is read a book!
    take care

  3. I am hoping very soon too Guido,Wow this picture has cheered me no end this cold frosty morning,here in my area.Thankyou so much for sharing.Is the big one on the right a Shamrock or is it a Maidenhead Fern?.My peepers are not too good just now He-He.They look very healthy I must say.Have a lovely day Take Care God Bless Kath xx

  4. I cleared the leaves from my elderly neighbours snowdrops which are beginning to open up in his front garden. What a joy to see there is new life to come. Thanks for cheering me up with your photos Guido. It is such a sepia coloured world outside the windows at the moment..usually.
    Batten down the hatches against the storms. We have gone back to an awul bitterly cold day today. Arctic stuff I would say.

  5. Its a sign of better things to come

  6. Lovely to see the plants sprouting like that. Is the very bright green one a plant called "mind your own business" ? It is a wonderful shade of green. Yes, spring is not that far away.

  7. We only have to remember that waht follows winter is spring...
