Last March days, attempting to going out like a lamb

What a month of extreme weather we experienced here in the UK and it has been many years since I have seen snow on the ground that late. I think (and hope) that it is all behind us now and that we can look forward to the early warmth and light of April. It has seemed like a long dark winter and I cannot wait for the days when we can enjoy eating outside again. Between the rain showers this week we had some warmth too.

It is also a time for new beginnings in the world around us. Mother Nature is in the starring role as always and if you ever need a moment to lift your spirits just take a walk outside, find some green space and just look around.

My regular walks to Dotty's never cease to lift my spirits every time. I can just be in the moment, despite anything else going on in the world; there is total beauty and joy if we just look. 

These were some recent photos which inspired me.




I am sharing something a little magical today. It's the card I have made Daisy for Easter featuring a beautiful Lavinia fairy. The sentiment is Lili of the Valley.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

Thanks so much for stopping by, I always appreciate your kind visits and comments. Remember to try to take a moment in your day to be mindful and grateful for the things that are good in our lives.  I treasure those in mine. I know that life can be very tough for some people but time passes and Mother Nature will make sure that even if March came in like a beast and goes out the same way sunshine is just around the corner.

I hope to pop back on Friday!

Bye for now,
