Been A-wanderin'

But I'm back now!

I'm afraid I've had a touch of February-itis and enough of the grey, dismal weather that's the main cause of it, so we've been across to the UK to annoy as many of our children as we possibly could :-)

Seeing the grandchildren is always a pleasure as is spending lots of money ,until the bank statement arrives that is, but, as always, its good to be back in our own home.

The grey dismal weather is still lurking unfortunately, but Spring is trying hard to take charge.  Temperatures seem a lot milder, even the rain feels warmer (!) and look what is hapening in the garden!

Beautiful 'Lambs Tails' catkins dancing around on the Knarled Hazel bush

A few shy Camellias peeping through, and, just in time for St David's Day

Miniature daffodils nestling among the new Geranium leaves  - better days must be on the way don't you think?

Your spring is more advanced than ours but I am well on my way to having some daffodils in the next 2 weeks. Happy dance!

Hi Ann!

At least you have signs of Spring now, we still have LOTS of snow! End March and April can't come too soon for me!!! 8-)

Just doing a friendly drop in PhD visit here... Looking forward to seeing some more of your progress on them on the group blog... 8-)

Happy stitchings!

I always love the photos you post of your beautiful surroundings! Spring is much more advanced for you - we have green poking up, but no flowers yet!

I've just this morning noticed that the forsythia is showing just a hint of yellow. Whooppee, spring is coming.
