|Yellow crocus - my favourite spring flower|
As we head towards the end of February, the countryside has definitely woken up. The snowdrops are 'full-on' at the moment and will be past their best in a week or two, crocuses are peeking through lawns and adding a splash of vibrant colour and the daffodils are just beginning to show and should be in full bloom by mid March. To most country dwellers, the main flush of daffodils marks the true beginning of Spring. At Christmas time the spring flowers were well ahead of where they should have been but some genuine cold weather (albeit without snow in Wiltshire) has held them back and they are blooming at a more traditional time.
