Just that really. Struggling with the general shitness of covidland... so in an attempt to try and focus on A Good Thing...

Fancy sharing signs of spring where you are? Anything from flora to fauna to your kids paintings grin.

From my garden today

Wow. I have about 3 snowdrops flowering so far, the rest are just green. Tbf I only planted them in autumn, they will probably look amazing next year. I will have a proper look tomorrow when I’m off, see if there is anything to photograph, but here flowers to add a little cheer this evening. Keep focusing on the good things.

My indoor daffs are flowering, I have some in a window box but it's lashing so I'm not going out to photograph them grin

Snow drops along the canal on our walk on Sunday.
Spring bulbs are coming up in the garden too.

Aww, thank you for the lovely thread and photos (OP, you take really good ones! smile ) it's nice to see a bit of cheer.
I have a plant that was given to me December 2019 (I can be so precise as it was a birthday present.). It was flowering at the time. I was really attentive to it and it started giong down hill. After that I thought, 'Meh,' it's dying and didn't water it for ages. Well now it's got about 4 shoots coming off it with white flowers on it! grin (Sorry, can't take photo as on PC.) I realised it doesn't like much water at all. I think it's some kind of Orchid? It came from Tescos' anyway (He forgot to take the lable/tag off. Lol)

Sorry, 'he' being my brother.

* purplesquirrel* nice 😁 so good to see the bulbs sprouting too isn't it?

@colouringindoors yes it's great. I love spring bulbs so purposely bought one of those mixed 100 bulb bags last summer. Planted loads in pots & tubs but still had loads left over so have stuck them in various places around the garden & most are coming up now.

@73kittycat73 does your flower/plant look like this? If so, yes it's a type of orchid.
