Spring is in the air

Yesterday and today we have had frosts with absolutely picture perfect days to follow.

The birds are chirping, blooms are happening in the garden and it would seem that spring is in the air.

I like to keep fresh flowers from our garden in the bathroom but this has lapsed somewhat over the winter but yesterday I picked a posy which included pink camelias from our garden.

We have a number of established camelia trees in our garden, mostly pinks and when they have had their turn the rhododendrums will take up their role in supplying us with glorious blooms as well.

It is nice to have the sense of spring in the air and it won't be long before we are out and about in the garden trying to establish flowers and vegetables for the summer ahead.
