I'm taking time to smell the roses....

...or spring flowers, as the case may be! Remember all the bulbs I was planting, well all that back-breaking labour was worth it, just to be able to walk down the drive and pick a large bunch of these.




The next exciting event will be the arrival of our lambs! One week to go!

I love spring bulbs.....and I was just at a fall fair in town here and I pet a lamb for the first time. I tell you...I couldn't stop! It was the softest thing ever. I visited with that lamb for 15 minutes. I think I need one now:)

Carole, they look beautiful. Great show when their are lots of them. I decided not to pick mine as there were so few planted. Must get more into the garden for next year though.

Congratulations- that's a wonderful display. Do you know the name of the one in your hand...something about eggs...maybe not. I had one similar but it was lemon and orange. I hope lambing goes smoothly and the weather is warm.

Hi Carole,
your spring bulbs are magnificent - way ahead of mine, but then I am from the deep south then...

The spring flowers look so cheerful and pretty. A bunch on your sewing table would be the perfect addition. Hugs Jx
