Yes the Spring flowers have arrived and they are wondering if they’ve come to the right place…it feels like the Arctic it’s that cold brrrr.

What a lovely view of Spring flowers. They are a real herald of the end of Winter, although, as Veronica says, you wouldn't know it at the moment! The title "Over The Garden Wall" reminds me of an old radio programme of the same name that my Mam used to talk about , which starred a man called Norman Evans who did a kind of "Cissie and Ada", (Les Dawson and Roy Barraclough), supposedly gossiping with a neighbour "over the garden wall".

Norman Evans was the best Irene he was the original. I could die laughing at him and Ol’ Mother Riley! I think I will look on ytube for Norman Evans I had forgotten all about him!

A Host of Golden Daffodils ( & obviously other spring flowers as well ) came into my head when I saw this over the garden wall image.
Will be a lovely sight in a few weeks time.
