Friday we dropped into the Vets to book Barneys injections - when we went last year the apple trees were full of fruit ....the bushes were full of sloes. the Trees had their beautiful Autum Blossom.
Driving into the park how different everything looked - The trees were bare = as were the bushes, everything looked bleak and dull
It seems impossible that in a few weeks time everything will burst into life. and Spring will be here with it's promise of New life..
The first signs of spring are the snowdrops - I really look forward to seeing them poke there little heads through the hard ground. such small flowers with such strength...and such beauty when they flower...
followed by the trees coming into bud - and making the bleak countryside look alive again. turning this dark wintertime into a new world full of promise...and full of hope for the future..
