"Is the Spring coming?"..he said ..."What is it like?" ..."It is the sun shining on the rain, & the rain falling on the sunshine..."
The Secret Garden F.H.Burnett
Here on the rugged coast of north North Yorkshire, we wait ....unwavering with stoical resolution & a huge dollop of optimism.... we wait.
Long after Southern Counties have joyously ushered in blooms & blossoms aplenty...our gentle floral scattering begins.
Tiny buds of Blackthorn & Sweet Almond escape gnarled branches...small Crocus shoots erupt from dormant soil; their dainty magenta heads unfolding, towards warming Northern Skies...sprigs uncurl... embracing the silken coastal mist...
...finally awakened Springs seasonal promise has begun.
