Daffodils Coming Out – First Sign of Spring in Moville
Spring in Moville
It’s nowhere near the official start of Spring yet.
That will happen next month.
However, it has been a fairly mild winter and there are already early signs of spring.
The buds have been on the Orange Raspberry bushes (some call them Champagne Berries) for a few weeks now.
The daffodils are just starting to break out in the boxes about the town.
I spotted he first ones breaking through in the box at the bottom of town outside the Corner Bar.
It’s a bit of a grim, wintry day today.
However, that has not been typical of this winter.
Indeed there have been a few days I would have been happy with in August.
Good August This Year
Maybe we’ll get a good August this year.
We say that every year though.
There hasn’t been a good August in Moville in this millennium.
Anyone under 20 wouldn’t remember a good August here.
But hope springs eternal and in a few weeks time we will get the renewal as spring starts to take shape.
And then there’s the summer after that!
