The First Day of Spring

You cannot have failed to have noticed, if you’re a regular reader of mine, that I am a tad impatient for the arrival of Spring, in all her finery. I just love this time of year -almost as much as I adore Summer (oh, believe me, my countdown has already begun!).

Mill Grange is a beautiful place to live, but most particularly when the trees in the front garden burst forth with blossom it is truly a magnificent sight. And when, like this morning, the sky is the purest azure, you simply have to stop and just admire Mother Nature and all of her wondrous gifts that we are offered. How beautiful it is today, the official first day of Spring.

And so, dear readers, today I’m letting the pictures speak for me. A thousand volumes per snap. Happy Spring to you!

What exquisite tiny flowers!

Such pretty blossom in the sky so blue

Clear blue skies with blossom

Oh Daffoldil, you wear such a soft, cheery cloak.

And WHERE do you think YOU'VE been? (Cheers Audrey!)

The sheer mass of blossom is fantastic this year!

The full glory of the blossom on the trees

Thank you Busy Bee for your continual efforts to pollinate my trees!
