☀Sunlit Sunday, my winter link-up, has been put to bed and it's time to celebrate the new season. I'll be picking my own tulips in May, but (for now) these purple ones are adding a jolt of spring to my living room. All but a few patches of snow have melted and, eventually, I imagine the ice in the rain barrel will do the same.
This morning, I dug out a wreath for the front door
and spotted a bit of yellow on the forsythia branches I'd brought inside a week or so ago. It will be quite some time before the whole shrub is ablaze with yellow.
The loveliest thing indoors is Claire, who has yet to be adopted. I was pleased that my foster girl stayed in the same room when I had a friend over yesterday. Part of me wondered if she'd run for the hills, or under the bed, but she's clearly developing the social graces!
In the garden (insert three cheers) there are snowdrops in bloom.
All is well when the snowdrops outnumber the snow patches.
It's time to move from this chair and pick a project that needs doing. I wonder what the best way is to remove paint from door hinges . . .
