First Day of Spring

According to the old Celtic calendar today is Imbolc, the first day of spring.  It comes under the auspices of St Bridget, Breed, Bride or Brig, depending on where in the British Isles you come from.  I’ve only come out of hibernation recently to get the broad beans in, but there’s loads of other stuff to do.  The days are visibly drawing out now, so on days like today when the sun is shining the garden feels like the place to be.  Lots of cutting back to do and digging over ready for the seeds I can start planting soon – and I’m actually looking forward to it!
