Look at the sky, feel the wind, and where has that gorgeous moon gone? It's March. Surely Spring must be close! We'll see if our poet gardener can defend Nature, can offer proof that Spring has not forgotten us.
Goosefleshy from the dull day's breeze, we asked Roberto: Is there really any proof that Spring will be with us soon?
Spring's very nearly - almost - here, he said, offering as proof four photos showing that Spring really is just about here. Each of the gorgeous examples comes from his allotment garden only a day or two ago.
