What are these four heralds of the start of my gardening year?
Sign one - crocuses under the lilac bush.
Sign two - the bulbous heave of rhubarb emerging from it's sleep.
Sign three - the garlic standing tall, the first signs of life in the vegetable beds.
Sign four - the gang of squirrels gathered on my fence watching me plant, chirping and flicking their tails at me as if to say, "What's on the menu this year?' Are you bringing it, furry face? Because I'm ready for you. Let the games begin.
See you in the garden,
