Spring-time

I think Spring has finally sprung – though you wouldn’t know it by the temperature! I’d planned on taking son out for a picnic lunch yesterday but it was too cold and gloomy so we stayed at home with just a quick trip to a fabric shop to get some fleece for a present. We ended up getting a rainbow fun fur instead as son fell in love with it…

Our back garden is starting to bloom. We live in a 110 year old house and some years, we get surprises – flowers and bulbs that haven’t come up before and then don’t again the next year. I also tend to leave some ‘weeds’ that others would pull up because they have beautiful blue flowers that the bees love. Usually it just looks like a complete wilderness as we haven’t ‘landscaped’ it – we just stick plants in willy-nilly and see if they stay alive! We also get roses and honeysuckle from the next house over in the summer as we get the sun on our side of the trellis….

I managed to to get a few photos the other day of some of our plants enjoying an actual sunny spring day so thought you might like to see them.
