Oh February you are a hard month to bear. Cold to start with, cold at the end but in the middle warmth accompanied by heavy grey skies.
It seems that the poem we read for Candlemas was right....
If Candlemas Day be fair and bright
Winter will take another flight
If Candlemas Day be cloud and rain
Winter is gone and will not come again
...we had a fair and bright day on Candlemas
I had hoped that I would be showing you lots of sign of spring today but there are few in my part of the world and the light this month has not been conducive to taking photos. So I offer you a lone crocus and a few hardy primroses from my garden, I am always amazed that flowers this delicate looking shows us their beautiful blooms in the snow, and the snowdrops which are everywhere and have lasted for weeks.
Perhaps March will be the month for signs of spring? I do hope so.
