Signs of Spring

There’s still snow on the Ben (as Ben Wyvis is known around here), but we’ve now had three days of glorious sunshine and there are definitely signs that Spring is on the way. During a quick wander round the farm this afternoon, I saw that the gorse is starting to bloom – some gorse is almost always in flower, giving rise to the old country saying ‘When gorse is out of bloom, kissing’s out of fashion’ – although there wasn’t enough bloom to get the heady coconut scent. The catkins are going strong and I found some crocuses hiding under a rose bush. The fruit trees are budding up nicely too.
