Saturday morning – time to finally get some of that spring stuff going – and what is it doing out there? Sleeting heavily on the swamp, turning everything into mud. Yesterday we had lovely frost

But today there is just mud and rain and sleet – so it will be another no gardening day. I went out with an umbrella to put some kitchen waste in the compost bin, which was steaming nicely, so something positive is happening in the garden today. Oh and there was this lovely little crocus, pushing its way up beside the rhubarb:
Rhubarb and spring bulbs – yes I know its a bit weird but it seems to work.
