Signs of spring

Its been a long cold winter but finally there is a hint of spring in the air. The temperature rose a bit yesterday and it looks like it will get up to 19C this coming weekend. Spring is late this year, normally in previous years the temperature would have risen quite high already around this time but this year the cold snap just wouldn't go away and my garden is reluctant to sprout!

But all is not lost for I see signs of new growth on all my plants especially the pruned rose bushes. And with new young basal shoots come pestering possums nibbling on them. Sigh~here goes another year of battling the possums.
