Blossom has bloomed everywhere and there has been real warmth in the sun. It has reached the dizzy heights of 26oc in the afternoons for the last week and it feels like I am on holiday abroad. I finished work yesterday and I am now off for 2 whole weeks. The forecast is that this glorious weather will last all the way through the bank holiday weekend.
My garden has been bursting into flower, I can almost hear my plants growing and the warmth has made everything grow so quickly.
Just look at my azalea which came into flower this week. It has a beautiful fragrance too.
And the fresh new leaves on my acer ............
and on my hosta (below)
I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to my blogger friend Teje. She had a recent giveaway to celebrate writing her 100th post and I was the lucky winner. Just look what arrived in the post.
She makes beautiful quilts and this is a notebook cover. Please take a look at her blog and say hello. She lives on the sunny island of Crete and is such a creative and kind person.
Thank you Teje (and Nero)
Easter also just has to mean an excuse for lots of this....
And your children just never get too old for these do they.....
I have also been making some cards..
Hmmm not sure if that is called helping or sleeping!
Easter needs a garden
Where its peace and joy may grow,
Like daffodils that brightly bloom
Above the melting snow.
So find a little time each day
That you can set apart,
To cultivate some flowers
In the garden of your heart.
And then, throughout the busy days
Your happy heart will sing,
And to the people that you meet
You’ll be a breath of spring
Have a very Happy Easter Everyone, warm wishes to you all.
Bye for now,
