Signs of spring

I'm probably speaking too soon, but there have been definite signs of spring this week.  The sun has been shining through very murky windows (a job I must do this weekend!) Blackbirds are singing in the mornings and great tits have been sizing up the nest boxes we have in the garden.

  • Harry finding a patch of sun on his nest/bed/sofa!
  • An orchid flowering for the second year, even better than last year
  • a few plants to put in pots (another job for the weekend!)
  • Daffodils giving so much sunshine and pleasure for £1 a bunch.. all over the house
  • Clematis armandii giving off a gorgeous almond smell in the sun
  • chick fabric I couldn't resist this week
  • Easter bunny made and off to it's new home 
February seems to have flown by I can't believe it will be March at the weekend... hope you have a lovely weekend and the sun shines where you are x

I see that the new Lego movie is out this week in the UK and thought I would share this with you.

Lego has always played a big part in our boys childhood and we have been through many sets... castles,pirate ships, dinosaurs, Star Wars and Harry Potter being a few of them.  Despite, or maybe because they are now 22, 20 and 18 my husband bought them a lego camper van to make over Christmas.  They enjoyed it so much and the finished article is amazing, the detailing inside with a kitchen, seating and even curtains!  It really makes me want to get a real one!

I, being a mere girl, was allowed to hunt for pieces and admire their work, so I settled on making summery butterflies and Easter garlands!

The sun is out today, so I am going to make the most of it and get Harry out for a nice walk and spend some time in the garden.  Have a lovely week x
