Maybe it’s just me, but it feels like it’s been a long old winter.
Perceptibly, the nights are getting lighter and these are the first signs that the seasons are starting to change. I suspect that we still have some proper winter weather to endure, but March is around the corner and this always signals the early signs of Spring.
Birds start singing and the early bulbs start to brighten the hedgerows and gardens. We can start to come out of hibernation too, get outside more and tackle the outdoor jobs that the winter weather has discouraged starting.
For the time being though, there’s some hard winter yards that need tackling in February, but once they are out of the way, Spring is just around the corner.
