Today began foggy and cold. The early morning commuters were huddled in coats and hats on the way to the station or scraped ice from their car windscreens.
Now, the sun is out and it seems warmer than some days last summer.
More and more buds are appearing too.
This untended corner of my local park has wild flowers in bloom while the long grass and heaps of last autumn's leaves are white with frost.
