Coming soon to a green space near you …
Wherever I walk, I’m now seeing bulbs sending forth their green shoots, to be followed in a month or two by glorious Spring flowers. These are Wild garlic but I’m seeing a lot of Bluebell and Daffodil shoots (and there are planted Daffs already flowering in a local road verge). I’m probably being madly fanciful but I think these particular shoots look like green fingers, nails at their tips. Is this where the term originally came from, I wonder?
