It's coming . . . it's coming . . . it's almost here!

There is so much happening in the garden at the moment.  It's hard to keep up with it all.  Each day seems to bring about small changes . . . Crocus and daffodil swarm over the banks and borders . .

It seems a waste, but the heart wants what it wants  . . .  and I gather up an arm full of sunshine to bring indoors.  It cheers the place . . .

Branches which were stark just a few weeks ago are dotted now with the tender spring flush of green and rosy buds abound.  The camelia bush next to the front door is filled with such abundant bloom one almost fears the branches are on the point of breaking . . .

Brilliant blue heads push their way up out of the frosted beds, whilst the edges of the path are embroidered with velvety mats of the violet bloom of primula wanda . . .

A golden fountain arches gracefully against the backdrop of a blue sky, unfettered with cloud . . . as clumps of jonquils and early primrose dance at it's feet . . .

Birds build and nest . . . it is a time we want to slow down the passing hours, to prolong the delight of anticipation  . . . the blackbird has been telling me for weeks now . .   Spring is come . . . Spring is come.

Just.   Three.  More.  Days.  And it will be official at last.  There will be no holding it off.   It will be in the air.

Whimsical fairies  . . .  wistful and sweet  . . .

Something cheering and cheerful . . .

The push is on.

A thought to carry with you through today  . . .

Courage is not the absence of fear
but rather the judgement that something
is more important than fear.
The brave may not live forever but
the cautious do not live at all.
~The Princess Diaries II

 And I do too!


  1. How wonderful to have all those blooming flowers there at your house. Here they are still hidden, just waiting for some warmer weather to burst forth. At least our snow is history for the moment anyway. Looks like you've been very busy working on all those lovely creations of yours too. Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday !

  2. LOVE the them all but she is particularly fetching for some reason..

    Love your bunch of daffs in the blue and white..I have my mom's sugar bowl like that.
    Your Spring is THERE!!

  3. The snow just keeps coming and coming and coming at my mom's Pam! It doesn't seem to want to stop this year! I am glad that yours is history for the moment. Hope it stays that way! xoxo

    Thanks Monique. I have a tender heart for fairies as you know. ;-) xoxo


Your comments mean the world to me, and while I may not be able to address each one individually, each one is important to me and each one counts. Thanks so much!
