Small Spring Pleasures





        Hello everyone,
                                               
                                                            We have had some beautiful sunny spring
                                                          days so the garden is popping as we speak!

                                                          I am enjoying working in the garden but
                                                         also, my little strolls around to see what
                                                         is growing or blooming.
                                                         The photo above is muscari with lutes in
                                                         the background.
                                                              I am always happy to see cheerful
                                                              daffodils in the garden again.
                                                                   Love this early little bloomer ,Lutea.
              Glory of the snow 

                                                                     Daffodils and hyacinths
                                                                   Our magnolia stellata  is starting to bloom


                        Spring has finally arrived!


                                          Now, it is time for a Spring Tea.....
                        another small pleasure.!

                                                                         A fresh raisin scone is always a
                                                                         treat with a cup of tea.


                                                  Wishing all my Canadian friends a happy
                                                           Victoria Day......it is supposed to be
                                                          another beautiful sunny day here.

                                                         My apologies for not posting much
                                                        lately but I have been busy trying to
                                                        get the garden whipped into shape but
                                                        soon I will inundate you loads of
                                                        garden pics!

                                                                   Take care,
                                                                        Carolyn

Your spring flowers look beautiful. I look forward to seeing further photos when you are able. Your sultana scone looked yummy with a lovely cup of tea in a lovely china teacup. Hugs Shirley N.Z.

It's nice to see your spring flowers in bloom Carolyn. You have so much variety and colour in your gardens. The weekend was beautiful except for the rain on Sunday, although it was greatly needed. Loved your photos today and the lovely tea.

Quando passo dal tuo blog, mi sento catapultata in mondo fatato, incantato, meravigliosamente colorato e profumato.
Buona sera
