Well its snowing again in Sheffield. The weather here has been truly miserable for weeks. However have been really cheered up this morning as the first seeds sown in my propagator this year [ Agastache, Scabious "Chile Black" and Gaura ] have just germinated. This has given me a huge lift and the feeling that the growing year has really started. New life is wonderful.

Once I see the first snowdrops in my garden I feel exactly the same Nigel.  Here's to a wonderful new growing season

Yesterday I noticed little fat buds on the Clematis Armandii that is in the shelter of the west facing house wall   Can't wait to smell that scent again.

Yes, it's great. I love it when it all starts.

Yes, come on spring. There are alliums and crocosmia I think growing through and the garlic is looking good. It has snowed very discreetly this p.m. but I want to be out there gardening!

Yes - come on spring. My Hellebore are beautiful. Even my snowdrops haven't opened yet

I managed to do 3 hours gardening today and saw snowdrops, it was just wonderful to be out there
