Thursday Thoughts

Spring is upon us, things are beginning to sprout and colours are returning to the landscape and gardens. ย This year my blossom tree in the front garden has been especially spectacular and I looked out of the window this morning to see we have been seriously petalled

My mums plant on the back garden is giving off some fiery red shoots

and my Mother’s Day flowers are blooming in the conservatory.

In the kitchen my herb garden is progressing nicely

and I have more herbs to plant and a poppy garden to grow around my shed this year

Since the weekend when we put the clocks forward the days feel longer and the temperatures are getting warmer, this time of year makes me happy ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great blossom, and an improved mood too. We had 21 degrees here today, quite warm in the sun this afternoon. It won’t last, I know, but it was most enjoyable. (Staying positive…)
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Your tree is stunning! Nothing says spring like blooming trees (well, except maybe tulips and daffodils and…maybe I should stop – we’ll just go with flowers. Nothing says spring like flowers).

    I love the word ‘petalled’, especially when it’s preceded by ‘seriously’.
