After a most unpromising start this morning when we had torrential rain which continued into the afternoon; it turned into a pleasant evening. I decided to take advantage of the sunshine and mild temperatures and go for a walk.

There are signs that spring is finally starting with the appearance of these little beauties. I first spotted the appearance of a couple of yellow crocus buds a few days ago and the next day, the purple ones started to appear.

A little bit of sunshine and they are now all in flower. I would like to believe that this is a sign that winter is over, but I heard that there is snow in the forecast!
