has spring sprung?

I'm not sure, but the sky is blue and Vicus has inspired me this morning. . .

You go Vicus!

Mel said...

I can dream!

The rumor is we'll get one degree above the freezing mark.....any bets? :-)

Vicus Scurra said...

I can confirm that in North East Hampshire there are indeed many more crocuses in bloom than there were last week.
I could bring you more news from my daily walks, but I fear I would overshadow that prize twerp Gilbert White. It does not do to overshadow local talent too often.

Vicus Scurra said...

It seems churlish, I know, but I misread the name of the young lady as Janis Joplin, and was looking forward to her putting a little bit of life into that piece of music.
And it's "Ralph", not "Rafe", it's got an L in it, like "Pillock".

we haven't sprung yet...hopefully soon!

I, Like The View said...

Vicus not churlish - I thought she had a rather stupid name (and you're correct, it is Ralph with an L, as in violin)

Vicus I saw some snowdrop! I wasn't going to mention it, but nor you've referred to crocuses I feel that I can

Mel the sun warmed my cheeks - it was amazing!!!

fingers crossed that yours arrives soon enough

man he's lovely, that Vicus. .

. . .but don't let him know I told you


katherine. fingers crossed for you too

Can't match crocuses (mice eat our bulbs during the winter) but the almond trees are already in blossom and the mimosa is just about to burst. I don't think RVW, the great hero of one of my music lecturers, ever wrote anything about mimosa, did he?

Mel said...


Piles of snow--8-10 foot deep yet. *sigh*

I think I saw some melt today! :-)

I, Like The View said...

Mel your winters always seem so much more wintery to me, but then your summers seem more summery!

Christopher oh! happy happy sigh, I do so love trees covered in blossom. . . and mimosa doesn't bring any tunes to mind (but then, my knowledge of things musical isn't totally comprehansive!)

I, Like The View said...

oops - comprehensive

Expansively comprehensive?
I love the Lark. Is spring supposed to have sprung? I can never remember the date.
