can Spring be far behind?

The temperatures grew slowly and the sun even came out.
So we all ventured outside.

Mr Bingley sniffing for Spring

“If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?”
~ Percy Bysshe Shelley
‘Ode to the West Wind’.

Mr Darcy on birdie watch

Bingley on plant inspection, 
is the ground warm enough to dig it in...?

... dare we dream... might Spring really be here?

N O P E!
... we woke to this ... March snow...


So, back inside.
hunkering down again.

Keep snug, dear blogging friends.

cat and rat

March has arrived at last. 
So, instead of hibernating inside, cat hugging .. we can spend more time in the garden!

Mr Darcy, and Mr Bingley (on the sofa)

the bliss of the damp and warm nose of Bingley ...

the Darcy stretch ... 


Even though this photo is blurred, it is so lovely to see Darcy kick out ...


... and here is Mr and Mrs Ratty, a friends pet rats. 
Her 3 cats take no notice of them at all, even when they are on the floor.
Not too sure Mr Darcy and Mr Bingley would think that way (and not about to put my theory to the test)
