This was a topic that most members really enjoyed and there were some wonderful pictures. The emphasis was on the early signs, so pictures were taken from February onwards. We had allowed plenty of time in case Spring was late, so our images covered snowdrops peeping out from the snow, gambolling lambs, trees in bud, through to later spring flowers. Enjoy our cornucopia of delight!
