You Can Tell It's Spring When..........


The " Beware Hormonal Turkey" sigh  has been reerected on the field fence
Bingley is strutting his testosterone filled body to anything with a pulse

March Flowers sit on the kitchen window sill



And Trelawnyd starts to look green again

I've spent the day clearing the back garden of dead wood, so that the blanket of aquilegia can transform it as April approaches., apart from that, I have made some pies, and sold some eggs to a passerby who palmed some euros instead of pound coins on me
Its all go

  6. I love that Winnie is sitting behind the sign. Either a guard dog or she is the hormonal "turkey" one just never knows ?
    Love the spring window arrangements with all the little bud and flowers in small vases.
    What an outstanding photo of the village.
    Just beautiful !

    cheers, parsnip

  7. Back in the old days, a 5p coin was the same size as a Deutschmark. Every cigarette machine near a British Army base in Germany was stuffed with them!

  8. The green is so beautiful. Next week we are starting a garden clear out, weather be damned.

  9. The village is beautiful as are your neighbors.

    How boring life would be without fanny spots, hormonal turkeys and scotch eggs!

  10. I am drooling over your spring , and making a note to dust off the "beware, geese bite" sign...

  11. Such a lovely pottering about sort of day. I love aquilegias.

  12. One day that sign will vanish and appear on the wall of a hip pub with kitchy wall decor.

  14. Your George is such a calm little fellow, just the opposite of the hate filled little Scottie that lives down the street from us.

  15. I can think of a few Hormonal Turkeys (of the human variety) who should wear that sign on a permanent basis.

  16. It's been a very grey and bitterly cold day here!
    Love your array of vases/jugs on your windowsill and that hellebore is gorgeous.
    I wonder if I were to kiss Bingley on the beak he might turn into a handsome fella? Now whose hormones are up? (Not bad for an 'old bird', me that is!).

  17. John, I think Sandie's theory needs testing out. Plasters supplied... :)

  18. Love the photos, especially of Winnie behind the hormonal Turkey sign. Trelawnyd looks beautiful. Spring is my favourite season.

  19. Fab pic of the doggies behind that sign!I'm waiting on my Ben & Jerry's Peanut Cup ice cream to melt a little whilst reading your latest post. Living on the edge here as well!!!x

  20. We're still icy and gray and rock salt gritty around here. EXTREMELY envious!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Wales is looking very fine and Springy! And the windowsill is just lovely. X

    ReplyDelete
  22. One wonders if Bingley and Winnie could come to some arrangement to satisfy the needs of each...

    One does.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Quite a few Kiwi ( NZ) coins get passed off here too. Have you got a bottle to collect those euros in? You don't have far to go to spend them over in Ireland !

    ReplyDelete
  24. ah...Spring in Wales looks lovely...

    ReplyDelete
  25. Winnie shouldn't be standing behind the "Beware Hormonal Turkey" sign as this will confuse any intellectually challenged passers-by. No doubt there are many such people in Wales.. Winnie needs a different sign, perhaps "Bitch In Season".

    ReplyDelete
  26. Well it has been a gorgeous day here in naughty Nunthorpe home of the wife swapping parties.... or so the reputation goes. That was quite a few years before I moved here........ I hope........

    ReplyDelete
  27. Perhaps I should have a Beware of the Hormonal Woman sign.

    Love,
    Janie

  30. A surge of deep-seated envy has struck me to heart. Where's a fainting couch when you need one?!?

    So, do you only collect gaudy jugs?

    1. Gaudy jugs, denby dogs, welsh watercolours, nice cushions, bits of nice silver, treen,

  31. I am struck to the heart by a burst of spring envy! Where's a fainting couch when I need one?!?

    I'll skip the hormonal turkey, though, been there - done that.

  32. Looks pretty, the Euros will come in handy when you travel, but that is like a 30% discount.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm new to your blog and it's probably all been said before but I just can't get the picture out of my head of Mrs Bennett exclaiming, "Mr Bingley!!!!" in most offended terms after an importunate foray in the field!

  35. Your neck of the woods is stunningly beautiful.

  36. I've got a visitor coming to stay on Sunday for a few days, so on Sunday morning I shall go and cut some flowers from my garden and arrange in pretty little glasses and jugs. Yours look so pretty and bring Spring into the home, so you've persuaded me, John.
    That 'person' who diddled you out of your egg money? I hope they choke on 'em!

  37. Aquilegia are so lovely and easy. I am in favour of self seeding. Less effort in the garden. I have a fabulous display of dwarf daffs and some hellebore too. I see you like having them as cut flowers. I try to leave mine the garden as we have so few of them. I must buy more. I will be planting my bergonias in pots soon ready to go outside in late May.
