It has sprungeth!

Yep, I think it may have.
Tussling winter for her place perhaps.

Snowdrops are the last flower of winter

Aconites, crocuses and primroses the first flowers of spring

And they are here in abundance.
Swathes of yellow and splashes of purple, lilac and blue.

Other flowers too

Daffodils …
… not open yet but are definitely yellow in their budding readiness.

The trees and shrubs are all tipped in lime green.

… we have had warm sunshine for a couple of days.
Not a hint of a breeze.
The cottage windows thrown open all day.

Dilbert could be found taking in the rays on every window sill as he followed the sun round.
The girls were dust bathing in their own sun warmed spot.
Grinning in bliss
No, honestly!

Winter is still throwing in the odd morning of frost.
And that definite nip when the sun goes down.
But I think spring has spungeth ...

Makes me want to skip …


... don't forget the gift-away in my last post.


  1. Spring has sprung - I'm so jealous! Still winter here in Minnesota but the smell of spring is in the air. Another month and the snow should be gone. Gorgeous pictures of flowers give me hope that it will be our turn soon! Thank you!
