Spring is in the air!

At last, we can all look forward to spring. It's wonderful to think it's just around the corner.
I was looking in the garden this morning, seeing all the bulbs showing their enthusiasm to reach for the sun, all the trees and shrubs bursting into bud, it truly is a wonderful time.
It also helps when we have more blue sky above us, we do seem to have had a few dull and dreary days just lately.

We have primulas, muscari, primroses, daffodils and tulips popping up all over the place, and that's just for starters.

Even the herb garden is going a bit wild.
But, there's also much work to be done, especially in our back garden. We have a few things which need replacing and some areas which need completely changing. But there's only so many hours in the day, and when there's work to go as well, there's never enough hours in the day, but we'll get there I'm sure.

Whist we were shopping today, hubby bought me a bunch of golden yellow roses, so beautiful. It'll be a while before the ones in our garden are in bloom, so these are a nice treat, and better than chocolate!

The weather forecast for tomorrow is dry and warm, so I'll make the most of it and try to get some outdoor jobs done. The trouble is, it'll be so tempting to just take my camera and walk the five minute walk to the marina and walk along the canalside and take some pictures. Im still on L plates with my new camera! But I'll just have to see how I get on with the housework.
Enjoy yourselves, whatever you do.... Linda
