I've been looking out of the window and wondering if Speedy was up yet.  He usually keeps time with the daffodils, which are early this year.  This morning I got an email from his lovely new carer in Whittlesford with before and after pictures.

Just up...

As you can see, he's had a nice warm bath and some oil,  and looks splendid - ready for another summer!

I think this is the earliest he's come up apart from the year of the Japanese earthquake, but I'm sure he was shocked out of the ground early by the vibrations from that as it wasn't at all his usual gradual rise and he went back to bed again afterwards.  This year it sounds as though he's just woken up gently and early because of the warm weather.  Just like the daffodils.
