Don't look now, but things are on the move...
After weeks of snow, sub-zero temperatures and grey skies here in the UK, three days of sunshine have brought out the crocuses, and what a treat they are.  Vibrant blues and purples, with the characteristic yellow-orange stamens, these flowering bulbs are just what is needed to get the main display of spring flowering under way.  These photos were taken in the Botanic Garden in Oxford this morning, with a jay rattling around in the trees and the foliage of other bulbs pushing through the bare soil.
