Hints of Spring

Good evening

What a glorious day we've had here in Suffolk - sunshine, blue skies and warmth! Windows have been thrown open and its been lovely hearing all the birds singing and the dull roar of an early lawnmower!

Its was no good - I couldn't resist - time to take some photos;

 Primroses ( a treat for me), crocuses, ladybirds enjoying the warmth and daffs that will soon burst into colour.

Washing drying in the sunshine, buds waiting to burst into blossom on the cherry tree, another ladybird sunning itself on the buddleia and catkins on one of the silver birch trees.

Just lovely - warm enough not to need a proper coat - I'm sure it won't last too many days, however its nice to get a reminder of whats just around the corner.

See you soon

You lucky thing, spring hasn't arrived up north yet. Once I can hang my washing out and have it dry within the day I shall be happy.

I'll need to take R for a walk, one of my first blogs had a group of ladybirds finding their spot to hibernate! Mind you still a bit chilly up here, it really cheered me up seeing all your spring flowers
