Will Spring Come This Year (and if so, before summer...)?

Exactly two months since the last posting... and what has happened?

It would seem not much, if one takes just the weather and seasonal change into consideration. Winter seemed to end late, and then returned, went away again for a day or two and then came back once more. The past 2 weeks have been cold, and wet; very wet. 

Snow has fallen regularly on higher ground. I fear for the small garden birds. Insects are not as abundant as they should be and birds having returned to these northern climes need as many insects as they can find to feed their young that are struggling to survive in these unseasonable temperatures.

At least my neighbour's wisteria looked quite beautiful in the first morning sunshine we have seen for over a week.
