Spring is always one of the best times of year in the garden, and this year spring is especially exciting for me: my partner and I moved into our new house at the start of winter, so this is our first spring here! I've been working on our outdoor spaces and it's been great to see them coming to life. (Although I can't take all the credit--the previous really did do a nice job on the garden.)
This is what you see from the back door.

The leaves are just starting on the hawthorn tree.
