Spring at last

It’s been a long time coming, but today really does seem like the first day of spring. Suddenly the frogs are back – overnight the pond is full of spawn, with a tangle of purring, leggy males looking for lurve!

Plus a long-awaited splash of colour from a clump of Tête-à-Tête.
And I’m stuck inside making a new website for Textilia III.
