Very very slowly spring is finally actually happening. Today, the very first flowers opened in the garden outside, a handful of little Narcissus 'Tête-à-tête'.
Miniature daffodil (Narcissus 'Tête-à-tête')
I have also planted the first seeds outside, namely poppies and sweet peas and a few other things that are to be sown "as soon as the soil can be worked". Inside, meanwhile, all available window space is quickly filling up with pricked-out seedlings of all sorts. Somehow they, too, seem to be growing more slowly this year, but hopefully they will pick up the pace as the weather gets warmer and sunnier.
