Stop for a moment and look...
Glancing out of the kitchen window first thing this morning, I could see sunlight slanting through the trees. But what was that strange green haze on the hawthorn? Closer inspection was required...

Early morning light



The new buds on the hawthorn are bursting into life! It's the first tree in the garden to do so.

Yay for leaf buds!

I think they've burst out a bit more today because the temperature actually rose a bit. :)

Yay! On this side of the Pennines the snow is still hanging around, especially on high ground. My car is still in the snowdrift that butied it 12 days ago. It's a smaller snowdrift now, but still significant, partly because it's frozen solid.

Oh, heavens! I hope that you can extricate your car before too long.

There was still a fair bit of snow on the higher fields between here and Corwen, but the sun is slowly making inroads into the snow and the car park was clear this week.

Brian extricated my car today, leaving a truncated snowdrift. It's now parked on the road and I can get it out easily. nWhew! The fridge was about to implode.

I was so happy when our peach tree blossomed! The pretty flowers are already gone but the happiness remains.

Yes, blossom always lifts the spirits, even though it's so ephemeral.
