It seems we are on our way. There are lots of buds on the trees now and new growth sprouting.

I've seen the first daffodils flowering. :)

My hibiscus and white mallow cuttings are beginning to show green leafings, so I do hope that Spring's on it's way at long last. I'm so looking forward to all my seedlings taking and growing for Harry to devour when he's up. Let's hope the worst of the weather's over  :fingers_crossed:

I ordered all my seeds for the outdoor enclosure a couple of days ago. Now that the worst of the weather seems to be over, it may be safe to sew them and get everything ready for when my two can get out again. :)

Unless you know they are not hardy, I would sew them now, as many native seeds need a period of stratification or a cold snap to get them going. This is why some seeds fail, if left where they are they often come through the following year after they have stratified ;)

That was my plan now the heavy rain had finally seemed to have stopped. :) The seeds should be with me in the next day or two. I've spent today tidying all the dead stuff out of the outdoor enclosure in preparation.

 

Hazel even had a couple of hours outside. She'd got the nose of a bloodhound and soon sniffed out some bittercress growing in there. She must have been nibbling on the lump chalk too as the evidence was all around her face! :rofl:
