Frogs re-appeared in our pond today which means it's officially spring! Winter tyres now off and summers back on. Had to take them off anyway as I'm collecting my new Outdoor SE 110 4x4 next Sunday.

Funny you should say that but "my" newts reappeared yesterday evening!
Nearly stood on them - ouch, as I am strangely fond of them.
Now - just use your imagination a bit - it may be the time of year that YETIs come out of hibernation as well, now that would be a shock!!

Last Tuesday morning I heard the beginnings of this years first dawn chorus. The daffs have been flowering their socks off for weeks, and a large Daphne was smothered in opening buds. Such a contrast to the floods. I haven't heard any news for the last few days but wish all those affected the best of luck.

Daphne has been flowering for 2 week here and smells so nice, can smell it all across the garden from down wind
, roll on warmer dryer days, the sound of my mower running, and longer working days

Dear Hood,
I am sure there are some on here who will be pleased to know the daffs are in bloom ready for the 1st of March, unless they are true traditionalists of course!

Whereas wakev, I like your style, being focused on the important things in life!

I hate Heron's, at the moment my pond is still covered, but no longer to keep leaves out just a blooming great Heron. My neighbour feeds all the cats in the area but there's never one about when you need it.

When I went to work yesterday morning it was -1 and the rear o/s passenger door handle was frozen solid. They are a very early variety called Rijnveld's Early sensation. Last year and the year before they were out at Christmas. April 1st all the flowers will be taken off then I can cut the grass on May 15th.I get Daffs, Snowdrops and Crocus all at the same time.

I managed to bag a few of those Daffs, I missed the boat last year as they do not seem to be that plentiful in fact I had to buy them online as they were not available at any of the local nurseries.

It will be interesting to see when they flower compared to yours Mr Hood.

I already have parts of the garden blocked off as they are coming through, some are around three inches tall. One of the Isle of Scilly daffs in the back garden has already flowered but was flattened by the wind. My main collection came from R Scamp who I think is near Plymouth.

At the moment the drive is being replaced and I have fenced the daffs off to keep the builders away.
The Yeti is stranded in the garage for two weeks.

You can't trust builders, they are ether late or so early you don't get time to get the car out before they block you in

Ihave lost the use of the front and back gardens as the daffs are through all over the place. This poor little soul is struggling to survive in the front garden amongst the rubble from the drive. It was under the rubble by the first variegated holly in the pictures above.
