This week has been full of sunshine, and while LO and I are fighting with ever-streaming noses and some impressive barking coughs, we’ve been out and about every day to enjoy that spring sunshine with some amazing walks.
Pushing our little one (LO) through the spring sunshine this morning, I couldn’t help but notice this large furry husk on the path in front of me.
I couldn’t resist stopping to take a couple of shots of this stunning pool of purple crocuses that I passed on an otherwise unremarkable grass verge.
Spring is gathering pace, the welcome sunshine illuminating drifts of early flowers throughout gardens.
In the last week of January a glint of gold on the ground caught my eye as I left the house; the first crocus flowers in bloom, Crocus chrysanthus ‘Zwanenburg Bronze‘.
In the first weeks of the year, our hilltop has seen extremes of weather.
Wishing a very Merry Christmas to all from our hilltop.
November has given way to December, and the days have raced along until Christmas is almost upon us.
Not another gratuitous reference to our baby boy, you may be relieved to know…
This autumn is flying past; amid the frenzy of feeding, nappies and snatched sleep we catch glimpses of the garden in its seasonal splendour.
