First signs of Spring

This winter has been wet and cold and miserable. I think most people would agree with that. Which is why I was so relieved to have a sunny day on Sunday. This meant we could get out in the garden, and to my delight there are some beautiful Spring flowers starting to appear.

Just a few lovely crocuses but it reminds me that this horrible wet winter is nearly over and hopefully we’ll all have a bit more sunshine and colour in our lives very soon

My father in law gave us some bluebells to plant recently (my favourite flower) so we made the most of the sun this weekend to get them in the ground and start to have a bit of a tidy up in the front garden. The back garden…..is a whole other story so there’ll be more on that soon!

Monkey really enjoyed being in the garden and even tried to help with the digging! Good boy!

I’m not much of a gardener but his daddy is so he must get that from him!

I can’t wait for these beautiful Bluebells to flower! There’s a little bit of woodland called Bluebell Woods not too far away and I try and pop over there every spring to see the carpet of Bluebells in bloom. I’m sure I will still go, but I’m looking forward to seeing some beautiful Bluebells in our own garden too 🙂

To close, here is a picture of Bluebell Woods from a few years ago. One of my favourite places in Spring.

  1. I’ve had my eagle eyes out for any signs of bluebells this week too! It makes me so happy to see the crocuses and daffodils out already – before you know it we’ll be at in the sunshine sipping a cool G&T *ish!*

    Lovely shots and thank you very much for joining in and sharing with us x

    • I know, it’s just such a positive sign that winder is gradually leaving us behind! Ha ha those sunny days will be here before we know it (hopefully!). Thank you, it’s a pleasure and am happy to be able to join in! 🙂 xx

    • It was very cute he was trying to be helpful 0 will need to try and encourage this, may be a good way to keep him entertained!! 🙂 xx

    • Hmm I love the idea of gardening.. but not actually doing it, I get a bit bored if I’m honest! Hopefully though if Monkey enjoys it, it will become something we can do together, just a little at a time… or I’ll try and keep him entertained while hubby does the hard work hehe 🙂 Thanks for your comment 🙂 xx

  2. Ah those crocuses are lovely! I’ve planted bluebells in my garden too this year, I’m really looking forward to them coming up. Fingers crossed for yours too 🙂

Thanks for taking the time to write something. I love comments and read every one xx
