February blooms




It seems like the weather heard the news of SMHI (the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute) declaring spring in Skåne. Today it was warmer and we got much more sun -- and that made the first crocus bloom. They're still not in full bloom, but they are opening their flowers now. As always, it's the purple crocus that bloomed first.






More snowdrops, of cause. Many of them are in full bloom now.






And some more winter aconites.



As I've been so bad a posting cat pics, I'll finish by adding a couple of my two assistants today. Julle loved the spring weather, as you can see.



...and Ubbi got stuck up a big ash tree. He got down on his own eventually, but it took some time,  a lot of running back and forth on the branches and some coaxing from my side before he darned. Did this teach him not to go up trees that are too tall (or, more importantly, too straight as it makes it harder to climb down a vertical tree trunk compared to a tree growing at an angle or with low branches)? Probably not as it's not the first time he does something like this. He might learn not to go up that particular tree, but he will climb others like it.
