Spring has sprung

At last,  some days of sunshine and temperatures creeping as daringly high as 10º C!  It seems to have been the longest winter ever, but here we are today with actual blue skies, for crying out loud (nou toe nou!) ... 

These pink blossoms have popped out on the scrawny tree outside my front door, and such was the bucolic scene at the farm down the road today ...

Yes, the trees are still bare and leafless, but lets focus on the daffodils and the spot of sunshine ...

Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!

Yes, quite, Thomas Blackburn, but I'm having panicked thoughts: do I even have any summer clothes? Where are they, and will I still fit into them if I can find them, after seven months of red wines, vegetative DVD-watching and comfort eating? 

Calm down, it's not like we're out of the winter coats and boots yet. Venturing into the garden (above) for five minutes has been quite enough excitement for one day ...

  1. Spring has finally sprung north of the border too! Your photographs are terrific! Despite having already lost an hour of my life today I am looking forward to spending some time this Sunday morning catching up on your blog, plus others, which have been neglected recently due to my craft fair exploits!

    I have a feeling you just might be falling in love with Scotland - even a wee bit(?) - wise woman! It is a fantastic country with some fantastic places to visit - and I hope you do! I plan another trip to the very north in the near future so will blog about it in due course.

    Yesterday's craft fair went really well....! Thanks for stopping by my blog Karen and for your comments.
