Springtime!



This first daffodil opened up this weekend - not long now and all the brothers will follow suit. In the front garden I have plenty of tulips, but no flower activity so far, just the green leaves that show sign of first nibblings done by the snails. Talking of snails...

The warmth make them crawl out of the soil and up to the wall, waiting now for some rain, which, according to the weather forecast, is due tonight - luckily moving on towards the east coast to leave us with another sunny day tomorrow. I'd better get those snails off the wall now...

Those look like pretty big snails! Escargot?

Thanks for the offer to knit a couple prizes for the benefit. I'll take you up on it! At the rate we're going, everyone might get a prize!

Our daffodils are just coming out. We don't get snails, just slugs. Lots and lots of slugs!
