Hello there! What a horrible, wet and miserable afternoon it is. In fact, the whole weekend has been wet and gloomy. It must be payback time for the gloriuos weather we experienced last weekend. Anyway, it's such a good job that it's daffodil time, because they are a sure guarantee of feel good factor. I just love them.
Mr Snoops pops up to out local farm shop most Saturday mornings to see what veggies are looking good to eat and at this time of year he always brings back two or bunces. Each week we seem to get a different variety. Last week the daffs were such a pale, delicate yellow.
This week they are so vibrant and uplifting..... perfectly beautiful! I love them!
The crocuses are popping too. I love these delicate purpley beauties with their bright orange stamens. Oh they do so brighten up a miserably gloomy day.
We have an enormous willow tree in the furthest corner of the garden, which acts as a haven and home to various birds and animals. It's just beginning to come into leaf, recalling calm and warming memories of the gentle swishing of it's long trailing fronds on warm, balmy summer days with gentle breezes. I can't wait!
The copper beech is also flowering and the forsythia is bursting forth. I do love the early Spring time garde, but I'd love it much, more if we could guarantee the warm rays of the sun.
Have a good weeek.
