♥ 52 Weeks of Happy ♥ 9/52

Hello Lovelies , 
The top happy thing for me this week has been saying good bye to February and welcoming March with open arms. 
March means SPRING and that is certainly something to smile about.
So here are this weeks little joys.

1.Catkins......such a welcome sight each year ..........

 2. Turning over my three calenders at the start of the month. I try not to look what the next picture is as I like a surprise. Sometimes it's a bit of a disappointment but having three means there is usually at least one gem.........this is my favourite this month. A lovely picture of the canal at Huddersfield.........

3. Sunshine and still weather at the the reflections in the lake..........

4. My latest bunch of Daffodils .....can't get enough of these simple beauties who mean spring is in the air.....

In fact I'm feeling a bit poetic today so I'll leave you with a little bit of Wordsworth, found in one of my childhood poetry books........


It is the first mild day of March:
Each minute sweeter than before,
The redbreast sings from the tall larch
That stands beside our door.

There is a blessing in the air,
Which seems a sense of joy to yeild
To the bare trees, and mountains bare,
And grass in the green field.
                                       William Wordsworth

Hope you have many  happy moments this week.

  1. Lovely to see your blue skies. Thank you for those images of Spring. I have been so inspired by your beautiful work. Our Grandson is coming to visit and I have made him some hexagonal balls and a cute cat .... All inspired by you .

  2. Yes, my husband was pointing out all the catkins today but unfortunately - I was driving!!! I must, must, must buy some daffodils tomorrow!! Love your fireplace - looks very homely xxx

  3. Hope your happy moments are plentiful too Jacquie.

    Spring - wheeeeeeeeeeee!!!

  6. I am so happy its March - its my favourite time of year - the promise of warmer and longer days plus of course its Mothers Day and then my birthday :)

    I shall be looking for catkins this week - am guessing we've some on the trees in the garden!

  7. Love your catkin photo..welcome Spring :o)

  8. Lovely photos and poem. Happy spring to you!

  9. Now I'm wondering if you could rustle up a little painting of that canal scene - I think your little bluebird motif will sit quite nicely in one of the trees! Happy March x Jane

  10. We have catkins in our garden which is a sure sign things are on the change! You've also reminded me to turn my calendar over x

  11. Catkins! Spring is definetely not far away now :) Wouldn't mind to sit next to the lake on the calendar and enjoy a nice warm spring day there!

    Love, Kirsten

  17. I have 2 calendars and neither can disappoint - one is with dogs and the other with drawings by Marjolain Bastin.
    The spring can be felt in all your images. We are still in the mid of winter - snowstorms and -11C today. Sigh...

  18. Hi, Love the picture of the boats, it's a chocolate box perfect picture!! March seems to be a happy month for everyone, Spring's in the air in the north and down her in the south, it should start cooling down a bit, although there's not really been a difference yet!!!
    Have a lovely week!!!

  19. Thankyou for sharing your lovely photos! Always enjoy your posts..Karen x
