Spring is just around the corner.
The weeping willows are also bursting.

All the willows seem to be the first to sprout.

Our Apricot tree is full of bloom, just waiting to see if the Fig tree will flower, nothing on it yet.

All the Camellias have flowered but they have lost their blooms in the windy weather. Snowdrops, Daffs in abundance and in the greenhouse my Toms, peppers, Chillies, Cues, Courgettes, Squash etc. are all through waiting to be thinned out or potted on.

Roll on Spring.

Saw a flock of grue today flying in the V formation, this is regarded as a sign that summer is approaching here in SW France as it was chucking it down in the tail end of Storm Dennis.

For those reaching for the French - English translation, grue = cranes - I had to look it up when told this at an autoroute service station.

Apricots in full bloom, as are the plums and Mirabelles, the scent is incredible, I wish I could bottle it and export - it would make a fortune, much better than those stench canisters they call "air fresheners".

Thinking of ALL the front line staff working to try to help others;Doctors, nurses, paramedics, cleaners, NA's, catering staff, support services and all others. Their work is appreciated more than you can ever realise-keep strong and safe.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Spring has been sprung a while here in Spain. The Almond blossom, coating the hills for miles around, is a joy to behold. Wild flowers are out in abundance. The farmers are hard at work pruning the vines and tying them in.
When at home I find Spring very frustrating It flatters and then recedes. I am so impatient for summer that I almost wish Spring would not happen and that I could wake up one day to summer!

Later this month the hills above Algarve are covered in yellow Mimosa.
