Today I saw the first Butterburs (Petasites hybrides) appearing, here on the waterside, between the still dormant reeds. 18 Februari, I think that's early.

There's some really wonderful stuff going on!
I'm always desperate for spring to get going. It seems to be having a tough time this year - winter gave us quite a few snowy days as it's last hurrah and there's been so much rain. Here are a few of mine from around this time last spring -

Oh, it's not all new friends who appear in spring, also making their appearance are new, vicious enemies. Beware!!!

They may be starting out cute, and looking harmless, like this one here, on March 14:


Still looking kind of innocent on March 28:


But then, as they grow older, the danger starts to become more apparent, like today, April 15:


We need to watch our plants! A couple of young hares grew up in my garden, every time I'm watering my plants I seem to be spraying on one, or both.
I guess they'll soon develop the notion that humans are creatures to be aware of, and will choose the wide meadow field instead of cosying up in my garden.

Spring is not only inside my garden, but also in front of it. Japanese cherry blossoms in the Netherlands.

With the ample rainfall this wet season, we're going to have an bumper crop of Almonds. Yum!
