Spring comes early

After taking a picture every day last year, I have a “weather photo calendar”, so it’s interesting to compare 2010 with 2009. It’s felt like Spring is early this year, especially with the 88 degrees day (!) we had a few days ago; we restored the pump to the pond today, and coincidentally did it at the same time last year, but I should have done the pond last weekend (though we were away).

The plants definitely are further on this year – the Forsythia have opened and finished, while last year they were just opening; and compare Daffodils this year, with those from a week later last year


2009, a week later:

A few more pictures from today … our house and the bush in the front garden:

The pond, and Fish – they know it’s Spring, they want lots of food:
