Spring has not forgotten us!

Spring has come at last! Mausi was afraid the arctic winter of this season would never end. Endless weeks of temperatures below -15 centigrade!

The first COLOURS of the year are out!

But now the first crocuses are out at last and that's a sure sign that spring has arrived. It is this wonderful time when the grass has dried up enough for a cat to take a roll and shake the loose hair out of her coat. Lovely.

Nothing like a good roll-over to shed the loose fur

In case you are wondering: this is not an UFO that has suddenly landed mysteriously in my garden, I would never allow that. It is an ice block from one of the rain water battles that has been coaxed out of its prison. It's almost unbelievable - for weeks now temperatures have been above zero now and it still hasn't melted!

No UFO - just water.

An impressive iceberg, some beautiful crocusses at last and grass to roll out the fur on, what more could anyone ask for?
