...Green Shoots....

"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

and mead French baskets 

 

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.
