Despite the chaos with Storm Doris, Nottingham continues to bloom as the first flowers and buds are showing through.

Although it may seem a long way off yet, the first day of Spring isn’t until March 20.

However, flowers seem to be standing tall over Nottingham and we have found four places to lighten up this miserable weather.
