Happy Valentine's day, Spring is starting to show it's face! Crocuses are starting to push up their heads through the winter beds of soil.

Today is my birthday! 2009 is my birth date year! Last year I turned the age of the year I was born, how interesting these two years fell together. I took the picture of the yellow witch hazel yesterday, it is one of my favourite shots of this plant.
February has more flowering trees bursting forth with colour and sunny blue skies.
This planting of snowdrops were just peeking out last week and now they are starting to bloom! So much for February blahs..I think the month is a great one.

Snowdrops are starting to bloom again, I took this picture in my friend's garden last Sunday. Saturday I walked down again to see and found this delightful little bloom. It is almost bigger than the stem that is holding it.
Next it is a few more blossoms peeking up, keeping the white pansy company.
Last year I noticed this yellow witch hazel not far from the orange one I like to photograph.
It almost looks alien with the thin colourful leaves.
