Today is a beautifully sunny day as you can see from the lovely blue sky! Yay! Always a thing to celebrate and indeed I have put a note of this into my jar of Happy, Thankful and Grateful things. I suspect that when I open it at the end of the year the weather will feature quite a bit as I have made two weather related notes just this week!
Because it is so sunny the obvious thing to do - of course - was go out into the garden and stalk the flowers a bit - no pun intended, but what a good one hey! In particular the pots of bulbs and the bulbs that are coming up in the grass. So far the only flower appearing in the pots is this lone crocus, but what an amazing sunny colour it is. Where one leads, more are sure to follow.
Isn't a beautiful sight, especially close up. I hope that the rest come out very soon.
There are a couple out in the grass too. When we moved to this house there was a "flowerbed" across the width of our garden, it had nothing growing in it apart from lumps of concrete so we removed all the debris and dead things and levelled it out and turfed over it. There were lots of snowdrops and a few crocus bulbs left behind in the soil - intentionally - that come up in the grass each spring and they are a wonderful sight. There used to be more crocuses, but they seem to have diminished each year sadly.
I wonder what the neighbours thought of me with my camera on the ground trying to get a bugs eye view of the flowers! We have all done it though - haven't we...
The snowdrops really are looking beautiful and seem to have come out even more after their little bit of snow earlier in the week. They are stunning aren't they.
Of course, I am somewhat biased about them because they are mine, but I don't know anyone who doesn't love snowdrops. They are so beautiful inside as well.
Tomorrow I will add some more colour with this pack of polyanthus to go in the pot by the front door, and I might move one of the pots of crocuses to join them. They will make a nice greeting to visitors I hope.
I hope that you are having a sunny Sunday.
I am joining Karen at My Little Home and Garden for Sunlit Sunday.
