A taste of things to come ...

After days and days of dark rainy days we had SUNSHINE yesterday! So out I went into my garden to see what was happening and there popping their heads through the fallen oak leaves were my little crocusses! So I straight away started to clear the leaves and there were bluebells, scillas and even the daffodils starting to appear!

It has been such a mild winter this year that I think all the plants think it is already spring! I love it when the plants start to come back to life, my hydrangea has started to bud too.

For the rest I am busy packaging up some of my bears carefully for their journeys to their new homes. Leo has also been adopted and will be living in sunny Spain. Have a great day, Catherine x


  1. Look at those signs of spring! So lovely...No signs of spring here in Norway yet *SIGH* I wouldn't mind following Leo to sunny Spain at the moment! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me :o) My email has been wonky to so I was not able to reply that way. Happy week, my friend ((HUGS))

  2. I'll send you over a bit of Spring Tracy :) Nice to 'see' you here again, Hugs, Catherine x

  3. What lovely photos. So nice to see everything coming alive again. We are renting at the moment, but I might put some bulbs in pots.

    Thanks for showing glimpses of your garden, its made my day.

    Hugs, Sarah x
