Last day in January and there are signs of spring everywhere.
The daffodils (Narcissus) are coming up in the meadow…
and the Prunus mume (Japanese Apricot ) is blooming!
I didn’t have my glasses, but you get the idea. Too bad one can’t photograph the fragrance.
I know there will be more ‘cold snaps’ before winter releases us from her grip… but these signs that she is waning, gladden the gardener’s heart.
