Well spring finally seems to have sprung a bit here today - its been lovely. Mostly sunny and warmer than I can remember for quite some time :) Washing has been hung out to dry and windows have been flung open. I spent most of today spring cleaning the conservatory - I'd given it a quick tidy before the estate agent took pictures but it needed its spring clean to cope with closer scrutiny.
Once I'd finished this afternoon it was time for a well earned cuppa in the garden;
Just five minutes of sunshine and a mug of peppermint tea (my new favourite).
Once the tea was drunk it was time for a few photos to be taken - even managed one towards this months Scavenger hunt as well!
Just look at that sky - and the cherry blossom buds - can wait for these to flower - it looks so gorgeous.
Hunting for other signs of spring I spotted a few catkins high on the branches - thank goodness for a good zoom on my camera!
Lastly something I bought last week which I've been meaning to snap. I needed a new picture for my bedroom to replace one that I've taken down - I spotted this in our shop the other week and luckily it was still there when I had some spare money;
Its a proper oil painting not a print - the note of the back says it was painted as a present in 1977. I love it and its not something I plan to part with - yellow roses grow in the front garden here and they are something I will miss when I move.
Right thats enough for tonight - I've a few more pictures but I'll save them for a post another night. Trying hard to get back into proper blogging and not just the Scavenger Hunt and Happy posts - if this sunshine continues I can't see it being a problem!!
See you soon
