We were in Southend-On-Sea earlier in the week and it was lovely to see their blossom trees flowering, there is barely a bud emerging here although I have noticed the magnolia and forsythia are thinking about it. The roses keep trying and keep getting burned back by the cold frosts and wind. I guess this year it is a waiting game. One encouraging sign is that the wood pigeons are collecting sticks and the jays and magpies have paired up and are arguing over territories.
Huge snowflakes in the garden yesterday.
