It's been a beautiful day, we even sat outside and ate our lunch in the sunshine. We've noticed wild garlic starting to grow, frogs on the move and the crocuses and snowdrops are looking colourful and providing early nectar for the bees.
Purple crocuses on the main drive were planted by school children in 2010.
These crocuses are known as 'Tommies' for short. It's much easier to say than their full latin name, Tommasinianus!
