Is spring around the corner?

by Helen Hooker March. 03, 2011 4874 views

Today has been another sunny one, if a little chilly, and it has really felt like spring is just around the corner. I had ten minutes to spare between pupils this afternoon so, given the choice between a cuppa and taking some photos, I decided to make the most of the warm sunshine and get my camera out. Back in the autumn I planted some bulbs in our window box which are flowering now (the smell from the hyacinths has to be sniffed to believed!) and I couldn??t resist the beautiful purples and yellows of the crocuses in the late afternoon sun.

Beautiful shot Helen. You're so lucky. I hope it's around the corner. It needs to be nice here by May. I'm having a very special visitor.

Autumn is just around our corner, after the summer that wasn't. If the weather doesn't dry up for a few weeks there won't be much leaf colour either. Boo Hoo! Your shot is beautiful.
