Signs of life
Last week felt as if we were living under a rock. It was so dark, and so wet every day. But today we've awoken to sunshine. The garden is a sad sight, with a large tree down, half the roof ripped off the shed and leaves and twigs strewn everywhere. But at least we can get outside and start doing something. There's light for photos, too. My Country Living is a welcome sight with a cheery cover. I enjoyed getting that in the post.
And on Friday I bought lots of spring flowers.
I've recently written an article about the narcissi farmers in the Scilly Isles. I didn't get to travel there, sadly, but I did find out all about the way the flowers are grown outside in the winter and spring months.
The bulbs are pushing their way through now, there should be some of our own hyacinths in a month or so.
Enjoy your Sunday.
