Springy Thing

Allowed myself about half an hour pottering in the garden today, responding to an invitation by one of our kitties mewing pitifully at the closed patio door.  I greatly enjoyed clearing away some long-dead vegetation and had a lovely surprise in the process.  Not only was there another unexpected snowdrop (from a planting which failed two years ago) but one of the emerging crocuses (crocii? crocus’?) is already resplendent in purple petals.  Returned to my slogging at the computer much more refreshed.  Spring is on the way, both in the garden and in my step.

I may even stop wanting to hibernate sometime soon…
