Spring must be getting here! We saw some crocuses today, both in town and locally, as well as a bunch of dandelions flowering.

Yes our dandelions are flowering too. That's assuming they survived last night's hard frost.

My crocuses are more or over and done with - but I saw the first dandelion yesterday... And the first bumble bee!

The dandelions locally are just getting into full swing. We're a very yellow area.

So are we - but it tends to be daffodils, oilseed rape, and the gaps filled in with gorse...
