For the past few days we've had glorious sunshine and bright blue skies, albeit with a very cold wind. But indoors with the sun streaming in through the windows and the lovely view across the fields, it's beautiful.
Loads of Spring bulbs in flower, a few trees with blossom, buds starting to appear on shrubs, signs of new life starting everywhere.
Lots of little lambs in the fields around here.
The field behind us is teeming with birds - big flocks of starlings and fieldfares, I saw a brambling in amongst them this morning. Saw a grey partridge out there too the other day. And last week a hare ran across our lane.
Sorting through seeds with husband, working out what veg we can start sowing soon.
Looking through my flowering shrub book, choosing which ones to get for the front garden.
Thankful that we have good friends just a few doors away, who have offered help with hospital trips and looking after Betty if needed. True friends are a treasure.
EDITAlso meant to add another big positive - neither of us has any medical appointments this week! So a pretty much free week (just as well as heavy snow forecast for later in the week).
