I have been wanting for ages to get some good pictures of the Crocuses, but due to the scarcity of sunshine in February and early March the flowers have hitherto been reluctant to open up fully. This week the Crocuses finally lost their inhibitions, and I got my chance.

The tough, waxy leaves of the Bay trees have withstood the onslaught of Winter quite well, and the trees are now producing a mass of little flower buds.

The Land Cress plants have been protected by fleece until about two weeks ago, so they have been able to keep producing a small but welcome supply of nice tender leaves to spice up our salads.

Hopefully we will get plenty more sunny days now, and the soil will warm up, so that I can get sowing and planting. For us here in the UK, April is the busiest time for sowing, so I will have plenty to do over the next few weeks...
