Life in Tasmania's Huon Valley, by a blow-in from the mainland

Signs of spring
Down in the valley, there are trees in blossom already. Up here on the hill, things are a little slower to start. But this week, clumps of daffodils have started to spring up in the paddocks again. The sun is shining. The grass has started growing again after the last lot of rain and David has had the ride-on mower out again. And the bees are buzzing. I'm sure we haven't seen the last of winter yet, and there may be more dumps of snow to come, but it's nice to see the small changes already. I really love the seasons in Tasmania, each one brings such different things to enjoy.
