Whatever is making you smile today, enjoy it.
Right I am off to paint yet more wood. More about that another day as it is not making me smile.
Apple blossom is covering the tree this year and it looks fabulous against the blue sky. I am a little fearful for the damage risk, posed by the forecast of cooler temperatures next week, but we cannot control the weather, can we.
Named Graceland they are part of a lovely mix of tulips with so called ‘Apricot Beauty’ and ‘La Belle Époque ‘. Planted lasagne style they have not disappointed.
Even their insides are attractive
I also planted a ‘scented’ mix of tulips. Surprisingly to me they actually do what they say i.e. they smell. The colours are strong and rich, the scent rather similar to freesias.
Today the weather reached perhaps 20 degrees, lovely. For April that is rather unseasonal and unexpected even. If, like me, you have yet to dust off your Summer wear, the prospect of showing the world your bare legs is well, too much to bear.
I hope this made you smile. D.
I guess that this particular Daff is Narcissus Sempre Avanti. Bright and cheerful, daffodils herald Spring don’t you think? They certainly make me smile, I hope they do you.
On a Saturday I like to enjoy something which makes me smile. Today it’s a little pink air plant.
Hanging around in the kitchen with letterpress ‘Bovril’ a Victorian cloche containing an allium seed head and ant from Mallorca. A strange combination now I see it in black and white, but it makes me smile.
