After one of the coldest winters on record, spring seems to have arrived in our area of Scotland. Over the past few months we have seen floods, severe snowstorms with everything brought to a standstill and the longest spell of frost that any of us can remember, but finally we are emerging from bleak, brown/grey surroundings into something more colourful. The grass is beginning to green up and the spring flowers are beginning to show. First we had, and still have, the snowdrops and now, the crocuses of white, shades of purple and yellow, are in bloom. The daffodils are not yet flowering here. Perth welcomes its visitors with a wonderful display of spring flowers.
