It doesn't seem a week since I last posted! Where does the time go? its not that I've been particularly busy, but lots of little things take up just as much time as big ones! And life can get on top of you too.
The pansies, however, survived being buried in snow, frozen by frosts and cut by harsh winds, and still they come up blooming! They are just getting into their stride now.
My early tulips have come along apace now the sunshine is here. I'm expecting bright red blooms very soon.
The daffodils we "inherited" when we moved in are still making a great show, even after 17 years. Most of those inherited daffodils are very pale, and look lovely against the sun. I've planted other, more yellow blooms to mix with them.
I took this merely because I loved the gentle colours. We do not normally encourage brambles in our garden, but its not doing any harm down the end by the compost bins!
And this is Max, enjoying the sun sitting at the front of the summer house. He was clipped the other day, so from looking like a shaggy hearthrug, he has gone to become a very handsome dog!
Not much to post here, but its Mothering Sunday today, and we are going to my daughter's for lunch. I am going to make the most of being pampered a little bit!
