The weather hasn’t been great, has it? On the grey and miserable side. The good thing about it is that the light is better for taking photos!
The front garden is more colourful than the back at the moment, but both have their fair share of things about to burst into flower. At the moment we are waiting (im)patiently for these buds to do their thing:
