Spring Flowers


On the back of the feelings of springtime this morning
I had a mooch in the garden at dusk to look at the spring flowers
Which are just showing their faces to the sun.

Pink ribus, miniature daffodils and grape hyacinth are valiantly colouring patches of my borders 
And I filled an old cut glass ink bottle with a bunch and listened to The Archers as the dogs turned slow circles in front of the fire and Albert sighed in the middle of them stretching his bad leg slowly towards the heat

The flowers are next to my bed
On the blue pained Lloyd loom table
And they look cheerful 
As I wanted them to

  2. I have a little arrangement on my kitchen table at the moment of the exact same flowers. 😁

  3. Today Iǹ saw windflowers and the leaves of wild garlic
    of which I ate a few leaves later today - and chatted to a birdwatcher in the drizzle and we heard a woodpecker but didn't see it - Would Albert wear a support whilst indoors x. 🐺 🐧

  4. It's like a work of art. Salvage Hunters would like that table.

  6. I love garden flowers placed in an unusual container. I have a little cranberry jug that was my MIL's which I use for such arrangements. Must get it out and fill it with some spring colour. xx

  7. I think that giving ourselves flowers is about the sweetest thing we can do for ourselves. It is literally saying, "I am worth this beauty."

  8. Your Spring flowers are very cheerful. They add greatly to your decor. Massachusetts is still cold nights and only my iris are showing just slightly above the ground. Everything else is completely underground. Sigh!

    We have grape hyacinths and azaleas blooming but the dafffs are past their prime. Your flowers and words are lovely.
    Hope you're feeling better.

    Hugs!

  10. Nature has it just right. Exactly when we need a boost after Winter she gives us Spring flowers. How cool is that!

    1. Don’t you think everything feels so much lighter?

  20. I often bring some flowers from my Philadelphus into the dining room when it flowers for the short time in spring, the smell is divine. I can't plant bulbs as I am on a high water table and they rot; I've had them in pots before now but I am notoriously bad at watering pots so discontinued planting them. Your flowers look lovely I have never seen the pink one before!
