You are here:--Spring is in the air

Spring is in the air

For me the first real sign of spring is when the crocus flower appears and on St Valentine’s Day this year as I walked along the banks of The River Lee I saw that first sign of spring with some wild crocuses peeking up between the grasses.

What I also learned last night while watching the TV programme who wants to be a millionaire was that the saffron herb comes from the crocus flower. That’s just a bit of vital information that I thought you should have!

It was a lovely calm sunny morning as I looked across the river towards Dunkettle Bridge and the hills of Lotamore on the north bank of the river. I was thinking too as I walked of the  people living in other parts of the world like my friend David Woods in America with his golf course still covered in 3 feet of snow. No golf for a while David!
