All sorts of green and growing things are emerging, just showing their heads above ground.
Sunflower seedlings in the greenhouse, promising a bounty of blue skies and seeds and yellowness.
A self-sown foxglove, nestling in the protective shadow of Lamium maculatum, first cousin to a nettle, but quiet, unassuming, and quite harmless.
And soapwort - commonly known as Bouncing Bess. I should love you but I don't, your habits are too pushy and even the pale pink flowers going on into August when all else is looking dry and sad are not enough to atone for your invasive nature.
I think that I might be peeping over the parapet as well. The sunshine and spring bring all sorts of living things out of their hidden caves.
