Hello! Welcome to a great new week ahead. I have no idea why I am brimming with joy today, but I am! It must be the combination of a sunny and lovely weekend - with time spent in the garden - and the fact that my shoulder is better so that I can return to normal along with the combination of being back and joining in all the bloggy fun with ya'll!
I have lots to show you that I have been up to while I have been away from the computer, decorating, gardening and other fun things. Rather than bombard you with it all today though I will spread it out over the week.
Today I have some pictures that I took at work a couple of weeks ago. They are sure signs of spring if ever there was a sign of spring.
The gardeners had been out mulching around all of the beautiful roses and adding wigwams which I assume will be used for climbing things - sweet peas perhaps - later in the year.
These daffodils are beautiful aren't they.
There is a wonderful clump of daffodils that has been revealed after this area had been cleared.
Little blossoms are starting to appear too.
What could better than this as a sign of spring!
Not everything is blooming yet, but the fact that that statues and urns have been unwrapped definitely means that it must be spring. They are wrapped up in the autumn to protect them from the winter weather and especially the frost.
I do have a funny story to tell you, bear with me! See the picture above. It is the sideways view of the main house. Not my house, my other house you understand! I was watching the Jonathan Ross show - a talk show - on Saturday and who was on but Lady Rose from Downton Abbey. Of course she was on as herself, Lily James. She was talking about some other projects that she has been working on, Cinderella, and another film. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Yes, you did read that correctly. And Zombies. They showed a publicity shot of the four main female characters standing outside a large grand house. Now, I am forbidden from telling you where that shot was taken, but if you find it on the internet and look a the picture above - notice anything.... I was rather thrown though - this is the funny bit - because I didn't recognise it!! The stone balustrade on the top of the house confused me! How daft is that!!!
Anyway, after that daft interlude...
Some more daffodils! I do hope that you like daffodils, because I have more daffy shots to show you this week!
I hope that spring is springing in just the right way for you, wherever you are, or that autumn is autumning in just the right way if you are south of the equator!
