I said I would stick to places this month when blogging alphabetically, but that felt too forced and restrictive, so I'm keeping things random.
So J is for ... what? Jam? I like jam (jelly in the US, I think?) My brother-in-law makes great jam. I have a jar of last year's raspberry in the fridge.
J is also for (winter) jasmine. Even on a dull day like today it brings a little bit of sunshine to the garden.
There are other early signs of spring. The hellebore is flowering
and the crocus.
A word I associate with spring is joy. That begins with a J too.
