Waking up to Springtime







Spring peeping through the curtains




Spring paintings on my kitchen wall



Some printing and embroidery work I have been making


Still need a nice chair to snug up in when the cakes are baking




I love the simplicity of  late winter/early spring.
 The beauty of freshly blossomed flowers against the cold and tired landscape.
Our home is similar it has settled itself nicely into the Winter with cosy cobwebbed corners
and  crackling fires, warming my toes by the aga.

Yet outside this morning the birds are starting to sing earlier and the evenings grow lighter, it is a nice feeling just being balanced on the edge of things, to have the expectation, the promise of the light and warmer days the smell of grass and blossom on the breeze.

Time I think to start bringing in those Spring days and the promise of Easter Tide.........

oooh I agree Lynn, it's such a lovely time; going out for a brisk walk and drinking in the fresh Spring flowers, and then coming back indoors to a nice fire and warming supper.....x

I think our spirit awakens as the daylight grows longer and the birds begin their Springtime ritual.
Here Winter lingers sometimes holding her icy grip into April, but we shall enjoy the beautiful sunshine all the more...
