Simple Springtime pleasures

Oh what a beautiful morning! The sun is shining, there's an energising warmth outdoors and yes, I am happy to tell you, Spring has arrived here in Kent. Sunday was beautiful too, so fairweather gardeners as we freely confess to being, Stuart and I spent a couple of hours in the afternoon sunshine working in our garden - digging flowerbeds (er, that is to say I pointed, Stuart dug!) transplanting shrubs, mowing grass, brightening our little corner of England after its long cold Winter.

Now Spring has arrived, naturally I'm feeling the urge to visit our local garden centres. I love taking trips to choose plants for the garden and this year, we intend to purchase a flowering tree for the back garden. It has been a couple of years since we bought the house, but gradually we are claiming the garden as our own.

I do hope you enjoy this sunny burst of my happy yellow daffs, caught nodding in the garden early this morning!


  1. Hi Paula, I was in Scotland this time last year and the show of daffadils simply everywhere, was so delightful. In South Africa we pamper these plants and are very, very lucky if we succeed in growing them. They very obviously don't like our heat.


  2. The photos of your daffodils are colorfull and makes you feel cheerfull.
    Here in Holland the spring is also in the air. Yesterday and today a lot of sun.

  3. how beautiful with the deep periwinkle in the background!!

    Yesterday was the day the robins began to return from their long migration south.... and wouldn't you know it? snowed last night a bit and today there is a heavy frost. Poor little guys... I keep hoping they will get smart and not come home for at least another month....some year.......

  4. ***LOVE***LOVE***LOVE*** them!!
    P.S. WOW! Your pictures are stunning!

  5. Thanks for coming to see my daffs! It hadn't occurred to me that they might be hard to grow in other countries - they are everywhere here in the UK right now and they look so cheerful!
