Oh, wait, this is April!! Oh well, I'll post it again... I've got daffodils blooming too, but didn't take pictures.
I have some in bloom as well. I seen to get them on both ends of "winter", or what passes for it here.

Our wisterias are nearly there.

There'll be about a thousand blooms between the main four.

Our sambucus has a lot of tiny flower buds on it.

These three azaleas are taking their time hiding the sambucus tub, despite my "stringing them up." It'll probably take them another year.

The lawn's not looking too bad. It's had two applications of iron sulphate in the last month and I'm mowing once a week now.

This azalea in the front garden where it gets little shade, has been in bloom for a couple of weeks now. It's about twenty-five years old and was always slow growing.

Not a chance!
It's easier to buy different wines inWaitrose
We have home made wine, made by Zigs which costs about 50p a bottle, and without the nasty chemicals that produce a hang over.
At the moment we are watching the brambles to produce some gorgeous bramble tip wine. Back in the autumn we collected hawthorn berries - that wine was super - a bit strong, but I usually dilute it a little with sparkling water - a huge extra expense - from Tesco at 17p a bottle :joyful:. My favourite one at the moment is made from the water after blanching parsnips (which go in the freezer)
You don't know what you and Waitrose are missing
