I don't know if it's just that we've had some awfully nice, sunny days lately, but it's started feeling like we're hauling out of winter and into spring.*
The almond, wisteria, and fig trees dropped their leaves some time ago, but the plum tree is only just now succumbing:

It's so nice having lovely colours out in the garden to mark the passing of time. It's really the best time to be out there - sunny days, but not too hot. Hmm, I'm almost talking myself into taking some Gardening Leave.
*Oh no, should I start panicking that I haven't gotten the garden ready for summer yet?!
