Spring is definitely here, and this is how I know: the lizards are out!
They come out in the afternoons and sunbathe - but you only see them once the weather is warm enough. This little one has lost its tail, but it will grow back. I think they're amazing creatures.
The almond blossom is also out, another sign of spring:
I snapped this tree in someone's back garden on my daily walk around the village.
