Firstly, spot the difference:
And I'm not talking about the lack of dodgy looking leeks! I'd have cut down the rest of the tree on the left but it's quite big and to be honest I wasn't confident enough to do on my own with the trusty bow saw.
Now that spring has finally started, some signs of life:
This years forced rhubarb, hopefully be ready in a week or so.
Daffodils and garlic just beginning to get going.
Newly potted up Blueberries.
Crocuses growing along the lane - we were lucky enough to get some crocus and daffodil bulbs from the council to plant around the site last Autumn and they've just started coming through - despite my random planting of the ones I put it!
Up on the forgotten plot...
It doesn't appear to look that bad from the picture and the small area of dug ground at the far end of the picture has grown significantly since the picture. Truth be told the soil in a dream to dig really, it's good deep, loamy soil. Plenty of weeds too! It's also a bugger to keep moisture in it come summer, but that's a long way off yet.
However, it's not all good news up there. This is the remains of the greenhouse. At least I can get to cut the hedge now I guess...
