How beautiful! Spring is in the air where I live also, but we are not as far along as you. Buds are appearing and that is a wonderful sign of better things to come. I do hope this continues and winter does not have any unwanted surprises for us.
Winter is laughing at us again today, but Spring will win, and when the sun comes out there is warmth again.
Spring has been flirting with us - a camellia here, a daffodil there....but temperatures hover under 10. Another week or two and we will be there!
March at last, and we can really believe now that Spring is nearly here, although winter linger on here until at least the end of the month, and there can be snow in April!
There's nothing like fresh cut blooms to fill the house with the fragrance of spring! I'm patiently awaiting for the narcissus in my garden to make their annual spring debut; their scent is breathtaking!Have a lovely week!Poppy
There is nothing like Spring flowers to brighten up still cold days, and the scent was gorgeous. The flowers in the garden are way behind!
The colour combination of your flowers is attractive and I like the way you have displayed them next to the pretty candle holders and candles on the woven mat. I'm glad you were able to get out for a walk with the dogs without a coat and you noticed signs of Spring. January for me was a bit of a downer, not just because of the miserable weather, but we too had a bereavement of a dear aunt, my mother's younger sister and felt the sadness of knowing the last of my parents' generation are no longer with us. We were not able to go to the funeral in Wales and join my cousins there. I also had a bit of a downturn after my checkup from the radiotherapy treatment that ended in November realising that progress to feeling better will be slow. However, there are many less fortunate than myself as you know from experience of losing your friend. I'm so sorry to hear that. I decided that I would like to see family in the Home Counties and went for it! We also have our usual plans for next month in place, so I'm feeling more positive. Thank you for keeping in touch via the blogging. Linda x
Coats are back now Linda although the Spring flowers in the garden are beginning to bloom. So glad you made the trip to Berkshire and let's hope everything looks better when the days lengthen, Linda.
I can almost smell the hyacinths. Did you raise these in the greenhouse? Here in London, my hyacinths are not yet out and the tulips are, as yet, green spikes!
Ha ha. No, my husband bought them from a very talented local florist - she does very natural bunches of flowers. The colours of these were perfect!
