Mostly pictures















Rosie enjoying the sun.















A sight to fill my heart with housewifely pride - weather good enough to hang washing out on the line, knowing it will dry in one day. And having got some of my antique linen washed.















Peony shoots just starting to appear.
















The first tulips to flower. These were sent to me in a swap last year by Pia.















Beautiful hellebores.















The best flower of all - daffodils. We've got hundreds flowering just now, and they're a sight to gladden any heart after a long cold winter.

Such lovely pictures. We have nice breezy sunny day here and I'm hanging wash out too. 100's of daffodils, how wonderful and happy. Mine are all finished blooming, and my tulips are putting on a show now.

I love spring flowers and seeing what's coming up is always exciting! Our clothes line needs repairing after a storm took it down, so I'm jealous!

Gretchen said...

Lovely photos! I am so happy that spring has arrived with flowers for you and Rosie to enjoy.

Lovely flowers! Our Peonies are starting to grow too and the daffodils are all gone now.
I love how the trees are blooming at the moment.

Yae to spring! I'd sort of forgotten just how wonderful spring is. I'm loving it now that we're back in Illinois! We were in Japan for some of it but it's breathtaking here in Illinois and a little warmer, thank goodness.
