Good morning GTers! We've still got snow on the ground here but hopefully that'll all be gone by the end of the day! Here's my first #hyacinth of the season, taken before the white stuff returned! Have a terrific Tuesday everyone! 😀 #pink #springiscoming

@angiecrazycatlady - Morning Angie! It's rather intense isn't it? Wish snow would hurry up and disappear here - then good riddance to it! 😀

It's a bit boring when everything is white. Let's hope we get a lovely summer as a reward for being freezing all winter 😊

Good afternoon all! After a terrific sunny morning it's now raining! At least the #hyacinth #bulbs seem to be enjoying it, even though I'm not! 😀

@titchyfra - At least you got out there! 😀 Brambles are the work of the devil! 👿 Although my new gardening gloves are brilliant I think I should have bought gauntlets, as I've managed to scratch my forearm to bits! 😀
