Spring Flowers

Spring flowers
How beautiful it is to see all the snowdrops in my garden. I picked a few yesterday and this morning when I got up and walked into the kitchen I had such a lovely surprise to see them in the window. The sun was streaming in and catching the water in the little glass I had just placed them in yesterday. Little shadows cast across the wall of the snowdrop shapes.

It made me really notice them. I then wandered into the garden and the sunlight was coming through the trees, the sky is so blue and I walked down the little path and looked across at the view towards the hills.
The bare branches of the ash tree where the birds love to meet. This morning two doves sat close together on a branch looking at the views too.
Snowdrops appear magically from the dead leaves and cold ground, so simple and delicate, so white and pure.
How much pleasure they give.
I am always so glad I plant spring bulbs, I love watching them grow and appear. They seem quite early as it is mild. I even have some fritillary leaves growing so soon.
Soon my own will be flowering the same as this little pot I bought. Do you like my homemade wreaths I made with twisting all the ivy and clematis vine that I cut when tidying the garden last autumn.
Snowdrops by the stone wall, slate from the quarry in the village. The wall is probably over a hundred years old, the same age as the house.
I have had many visitors to my blog, looking at all of my drawings, hope you enjoyed seeing them all and found them inspiring.

As always thank you for the lovely comments you leave , I do enjoy reading them all. I am busy and will share with you what I have been doing soon. So in the meantime a whole gallery to look at.
I am going for a walk to enjoy the sunshine and blue sky while it lasts. Hope you are all enjoying some sunshine too. Millyx
