I saw a dead bee the other day. Does that count? Could have spent the winter buried under the snow, but who knows?

At the Golf Club I work at I have seen snowdrops and crocuses in flower, I have also seen a female and male duck walking together on the course, so should soon see ducklings. So far its been a cold March so do not have to mow the grass at work and home yet,

Mowed back lawn at home for 1st time and Daffodils and Crocues are out, been a very wet year in UK so far so cant mow yet at Golf Club as soil is too wet for sit on mowers.
