Spring is emerging from the sleepiness of a wet winter

Yesterday afternoon was spent in the garden, pruning roses and trees, realising how much there is to do. The sun was shinning and the air was spring like. How different this morning is. The wind is howling, the rain pouring from the skies. In need of inspiration I have turned to books and garden catalogues and been reminded by Shane Connolly that "nature doesn't die in winter, it just sleeps, and some things actually flower in those darkest months". Besides, baking, cleaning and taking care of my family today I plan to pull a few things together to inspire. Foliage and flowers from the garden and containers I have around the house and outbuildings. I will post the results later.
