promises of spring

IMG_0805Yesterday it felt and looked like spring and we spent the afternoon tidying up the garden a little with the help of my sister.  I love the yellowness of spring flowers and the way it is so often paired with bright pink or purple in combinations I would never enjoy anywhere else. Look at the colours of this flowering currant!  And this forsythia.  (I must pick some and bring it inside – the bush is need of pruning anyway.)IMG_0802We have daffodils and primroses coming up, and the hundred tulips I planted in November (very late) have beautifully healthy looking leaves about 8cm tall.  I can’t wait to see the flowers.  Little E was out in our tent, exploring the leaves and grass and sticks – and anything else she could reach and get into her mouth.  D and E were running around in bare feet.IMG_0830Today is grey, again, and cold and wet.  Still, we have our promises of spring.  We can wait a little longer.

I started blogging after the birth of my first child. Since I stopped working, I realise I am defined far more by my relationships than by what I do. So, I am: wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend.
