Spring Pictures

Well it must be nearly upon us - spring that is. I was tempted to cut these pretty things and bring them into the house but decided against it as they look so pretty in the middle of the lawn protected by the large tree.
Honey took the day off work to help me put up and fill the vegetable boxes in readiness for our spring planting. Luckily we actually delayed the planting for a week or two as we were given notice to leave a few days later by our landlords. The funny thing was we had been thinking of moving on but had put it on hold as we couldn't make up our minds so we got the shove we needed. We have already found a new rental which we move in to in 3 weeks time! Its an old farmhouse again but this time on an organic orchard which is much more our thing. We do love large rambling farmhouses in rural areas and when we are finally sick of that (hard to imagine) we will buy something small in town. But for the next few years we will continue to enjoy being country bumpkins.

Another pretty picture to end with - pink pansies and cyclamen in front of rosemary and lavender. Little Annie, our fluffy baby goes into a blissful meditation when sniffing this rosemary.
