New life


 This weekend what a welcome sight  - blue skies and blossom and signs of new growth emerging....


The sun shining through the petals of the hellebores showing the shadow of the stamen.


 Our first cup of tea outside in the garden this year (even if we were still wearing our coats) - a great way to celebrate my husband's birthday.


 Spring flowers in the borders miniature daffodils, snowdrops, primroses and heather.




A late afternoon walk shared with an owl flying overhead - quite magical.


We finished the day with a celebration meal at a local pub with friends, the windscreen were frozen over as we returned to the car and today has been cold again with grey skies!

This afternoon another birth- I became a Great-Aunt when my nephews wife gave birth to lovely little boy a month early but weighing 6 lbs. Welcome Harry!

Welcome also to all my new followers sorry I haven't said hello for a while so there is quite a list! It's lovely to have you alongside House of SeasonsCountryside TalesBunny MummyIsabella e le tre gatteWedding RoadH WIT blog and Diana.

  2. Beautiful photos, very spring like. We've had good weather this weekend too and although still cold, it was lovely to feel a little warmth from the sun at times. Sounds like you've had a great weekend :)

  4. Happy Birthday to your husband and to Harry.

    The weather keeps teasing us with hints of spring doesn't it, before slipping back into winter cold and grey. Here's hoping for more sunny days soon :)

    Gorgeous images Sarah :)

  5. OH YES! Spring is in your midst, Sarah and Daisy! This is so exciting! We still have a blanket of snow on our landscape, but the promise of change is never broken. It will be our turn soon.

    Miss Daisy, my, you are just darling; you have a new haircut?

    Hugs and wishes for a super week! Anita

  15. I have just returned from a walk and was desperately looking for signs of spring - just a few green buds on the hawthorn would have been enough – but no luck here in Yorkshire. Although on Saturday in the sun I did see my first butterfly. Congratulations on becoming a Great Aunt x

  21. Dear Sarah,

    Congratulations to your husband and your new little nephew! Your garden looks beautiful. Nature is ahead in England. There is so much in bloom in your garden already. I think it will be another two weeks before the daffodils are in bloom in Rotterdam. Perhaps this weeks sun will help. Hope it will be sunny in the UK too.

    Have a lovely week! Take care,

  22. Congratulations Sarah,
    I think that you are having better weather there in the Uk, than we are having here in Portugal. Its been such bad weather.
    Great that you could even with coats sit outside and celebrate your hubbies birthday, congratulations to him.
    Love your photo of your walk.
    Your garden is beautiful.
    wishing you a happy Tuesday.
    xx val

  23. Hi Sarah,

    Belated birthday wishes to your husband. Lovely photos, especially that last one which is my favourite. The sunshine's been lovely but unfortunately it's back to rain and a grey sky today.
