Signs of spring 27 March 2010
The signs of Spring are just the same at Mulberry Barn as elsewhere. Why would South Norfolk be any different ?

For me I await the daffodils and the Primula.

I love sending photos on emails to my friends with no Spring (South Africa) or mates 6 weeks behind us in Switzerland.

I’m amazed my Swiss friends are surprised by our earlier flowers but anyone doing GCSE Geography would know our Atlantic climate would be ahead of their continental climate. A primula in March still receives “cheat” accusations.

This year I have surrounded a new bird table by new dogwoods, so I can't wait for their buds blooming straight in front of me in the study AND the birds loving them too..
