Spring on Mendip

At last it feels as though spring is here, the garden is beginning to look pretty with Daffodils and Forsythia bringing some sunshine. There has been a chilly, dull few weeks since the snow which didn't provide much incentive for photography around home.

Many of the plants that should have provided some colour through the winter and early spring were killed off, leaving soggy and rotting masses in the planters and tubs. Off the hill, down in Wells and along the route of the A371 spring flowers are much more advanced, about 2 weeks ahead of us.
