Has Spring Arrived ....Whilst I Have BeenLying Abed ?

Hello there ... just thought I ought to say Hi'

I'm feeling a lot better ... thank you for all your kind wishes ...winging their way through the bloggy ether.
Got dressed properly today and had a bit of a mooch around the garden.  

 I think Spring may have sneaked up on me whilst I lay abed snuffling.
Its all beginning to look fresh and pretty in the garden.
Even the fields have a greenish bloom to them ... the sunshine has started the grass to grow ... I know its been a real worry to the farmers.

Do  you like my little slate planter .... Hubby P made it for me years ago ... cant believe its lasted so long.
Its made from old roof slates ...holes drilled .. and wired together.
I think it was an idea out of a magazine ...

 This is Will's Horse chestnut tree ..... the big fat buds ready any minute to burst forth into leaf.

 When Will first started his training as a Tree Surgeon ... working in the woods amongst all the fabulous trees ... he would bring home seeds.

And this was one of the first he planted ... just gently pushed into some good compost ... blessed ... and left to do its thing.
Its now a sturdy little tree in a big pot ... bursting forth with its huge leaves every year ... soon we will have to find it a permanent spot to reach to the sky and celebrate the joys of living.

Who can resist a tub of tulips ... can't remember what they are ... but I'm sure they will be lovely.

And Forget-Me-Nots ...sneaking up behind the daffodils ... what a splendid colour.

Well I enjoyed my little saunter ... but the wind got up again the sun went in and the rain came... all went a bit grey.
Still I am sure we will have more sunshine ... maybe tomorrow.

Sorry its been all a bit garden-y .... but I've been nowhere else!

Back to work this week and hopefully a bit more going on .... certainly need to shop ....stocks are low...any bargains in the shops?
Why does the thought of shopping fill me with dread ....I think its that not knowing ....
not knowing how much they have banged the prices up!

Take care xx
