Spring is in full throttle, and I’m enjoying our under-storey planting.

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 found myself quite captivated by one of our clumps of the fuchsia-pink Barcelona tulips, now in their third year here, as I took a rest from working in the spring sunshine on Good Friday.

Back in Blue

Back in Blue

A glorious run of sunny days stretched across the weekend, bringing us two unprecedented back-to-back days of spring sunshine at leisure.
