 Morning ,

So looking forward to seeing signs of spring, There are a few flowers out in the garden and are trying to stand up again after being beaten down by all the snow, it shows though that they are trying to brighten the garden up. Every year I have a daffodil that is coming from very near the shed and it grows very tall looking for the light, Its protected by the rosemary bush and is why it grows so tall.
