The prelude to spring wasn't very good. There had been lots of rain, even some snow, but by the end of February things were starting to look up

Sudden snowfall February 10th
Snowdrops starting to show on the green

During March the sun came out and the blossom and daffodils started appearing

Early spring flowers, March 6th.
The Daffodils were in full bloom in the second week of March...
... including those in the dip.
As the trees came into bloom, the CV19 lockdown began

At the end of March we went into lockdown

There are lots of nice walks that we could use for our daily excercise - this is Mill Lane  on March 31st
Rainbows of Hope started to appear - April 3rd
For some Hankelow residents, life goes on as normal - April 4th in Mill Lane
Lights in thankfulness for the NHS April 8th

Thankfully, the spring flowers continued to come through in April...
