The colours of Spring

I may not be as enthusiastic a gardener as Heather, but the sun and warmth have drawn me outside the last couple of days to rake and pull out lots of dead stuff left from last autumn. Above are the buds on one of my apricot trees (and the sky really is that blue, not retouched)!

Below, a solitary violet (I remember mowing over that spot last year and am very glad they are growing again). On the right, my forsythia.

And lastly a tiny daffodil - there is a group of them near my back door - I think the bulbs were somewhat displaced last year when the contractor dug a trench to connect our house up to the sewer.
