The rain is holding off and the harsh winds appear to have blown over, giving us hope that the worst of the winter weather is behind us.

Over recent days we have seen photos of snowdrops, breaking through the rain-soaked soil, dropping in from our iwitness members.
And now, there are further signs that spring is on its way.

Frances Crickmore photographed these hares springing around in a green field, and Barry Pullen has shared photos of fresh blooms.

We have also had photos of sheep at Somerleyton submitted by members keen to share the sights of spring.

Is this a sign of things to come? Or are we due another bout of stormy weather?

Share your photos with our readers today.
