...something beginning with "L".
It's a beautiful, bright, sunny February day with barely a cloud in the sky, but I was still a bit surprised to see this little chap sunbathing in my small suburban garden as there's still a very distinct nip in the air.
Most of the plants haven't over-wintered particularly well although predictably the geraniums are determined to stay alive. The white jasmine still has some flowers, along with it's small, shiny black berries, and the magnolia is sporting some furry buds on it's branches.
Mini-daffs, crocuses and hyacinths are beginning to poke through the soil next to the yellow primulas, so it seems that Mother Nature is trying to let us know that spring is on it's way. The sooner the better I say!
