Wonderful yellows in my daffodowndillies too!
You can almost smell the gentle spring warmth here and the yellows and greens gives me a real "mmmmm" moment.
I also indulged in a little retail therapy recently when my Hb and I took a day off from work and travelled up to the designer discount shops in Bicester, Oxford and found none other that Cath Kidston at discount prices...it was sheer retail heaven. I bought the above oven gloves and a set of real napkins to go in our picnic basket (yes I really do have one called Al, I will explain later on in the year). We always try to have some picnics in the summer, food taste SO much better!
I also bought us a new CK hand towel for the bathroom with a wonderful retro sailing ship pattern on.
It makes hand drying much more interesting.
At the garden centre I spotted a rose being produced for the Royal Wedding this year...I'm not sure about the colour but I think everyone is really looking forward to the Wedding of THIS year ;0) We even get an extra bank holiday for it.
Primroses are also such a happy showy flowers and there are so many colours to choose from. I also spotted some Daphne Odora (below) which has the most amazing scent and I treated myself to one.
Sending all my blogger friends out there some spring sunshine. I always love having you visit me here and I so enjoy reading your kind comments. Thank you. Also to those who "silently read" a big smile and a wave hello to you all too. I am off this afternoon to meet my daughter. We are continuing our quest for the perfect dress for THE wedding of 2012.
Enjoy exploring the signs and colours of spring around you too,
Bye for now,
