Happy Easter to you. The weather may not be great...O.K. it's downright cold at the moment but the lengthening days are encouraging new growth and all around are signs that we are now entering my favoutite season. I just hope it doesn't go too fast:0)
Here is my roundup of seasonal Happies for this past week.
1♥ Daffodils I just love the way these beauties line the roadside and flower year after year without fail. Simply getting better over time not worse.
If you take the time to notice there are so many different varieties too.
In my own garden I prefer the mini daffs as they don't look so messy as they die back.
But lets not think about that now. THIS is their moment in the sunshine.
And what a special moment it is.
2 ♥ Colourful Crochet. I'm making an effort to finish off some long neglected WIP's at the moment. These "log cabin" granny squares are finally joined together...using the deep purple colour of Stylecraft Emperor. I'm now adding a wide border to make this a usable size as a toddler blanket or play mat.
3 ♥ An evening walk...well actually the first daylight evening walk of the year. Hurray!!
On Wednesday I could tell there was a lovely light about 7pm, so I headed out in search of the sunset.
And I could see a glow through the gap in the hedge.
Peeping through I loved the light on the distant fields.
I snapped away happily, trying to capture the beauty that was all around.
Then I headed off down the footpath for a little walk.
4 ♥ A morning walk. Here's the same view as above, taken the following morning. I love the contrast.
Here he is :0)
I see pink suet pellets are still his favourite.
This year I've got a very inexpensive calendar of Britain's Landscape. All the pictures so for have been lovely, but I've particularly enjoyed March. This calendar makes me smile because the compilers haven't tried to match the seasons at all...so in March we have lots of Autumn colour. Not usually seen in this hemisphere....but I'll take it when the image is as beautiful as this.
7 ♥ Fundraising. I've been out collecting for the amazing charity Marie Curie UK. I think they do a fabulous job ...and I love their Daffodil Pin :0)
8 ♥ Walking in the rain. It has it's challenges....
but I do have waterproof boots.
and an umbrella.
It's so good to have a goal like the walk 1000 miles in a year challenge to spur me to get outdoors even when the weather is not great. I actually loved this walk. Everywhere was so quiet...except fot the gushing brook.
This was a six mile walk yesterday, so I was glad to have a dry spot to stop halfway through.
I loved looking out on the peaceful churchyard.
And snacking on homemade cake while I admired the Easter flowers.
In the woodland there were bluebell shoots.
And tiny wild violets.
I marched up the hills and felt better for pushing myself
This display in the local Yarn shop made me smile as I passed.
9 ♥ Easter Decorations. I'll finish this week with this shot of my mum in laws Easter decorating. She has been quiet poorly recently, but thankfully she is now feeling much better. I'm so happy she is back to doing fun stuff like this to make her family smile :0)
Wishing you all a good week ahead.
