Despite these grey and damp skies, the unmistakable presence of hope exists. Noticing a multitude of spring's early signs. Well ahead of the official date, still four weeks away. Appreciating clusters of delicate snowdrops in a neighbour's garden. Passing by bushes profusely adorned with pink hued buds. Grateful for the masses of daffodils inching their way closer to flowering. Surprisingly spotting an early blooming cherry tree yesterday afternoon. All this new life, combined with increasing daylight, attempting to brighten the days with optimism and cheer.
