At Winter's End ...

... the first signs of Spring appear.
The blue tits are busy nesting in the nest box on our neighbours' wall.
The first Spring flowers appear in our garden.
Dwarf Iris
Winter Aconites
Yellow Crocuses

Indoors, the white grape hyacinths are growing.

And I baked another cake from The Hummingbird Bakery book. This one is a lemon and poppy seed cake, which I have decorated with Spring flower-shaped sprinkles.

I also baked some blackcurrant muffins, using homegrown blackcurrants that I had frozen.

Yes I have noticed the blue tits and blackbirds are quite active!*! Also the crows seem to be around their nests quite a lot at the moment so Spring must be around the corner!!
Love the cakes... they look so delicious.. my mouth is watering as I type!!
