spring moments

spring has well and truly sprung here at my house. the flowers are blooming, the bees are buzzing, the weather is warming up and the days are getting longer. I have to admit I hate to say goodbye to autumn and winter as they are my favourite seasons (I know, I know...I'm a bit weird) but also because it means that hot summer days are on the way and I don't cope with heat very well anymore. but spring is beautiful and our days have been lovely lately - how could they not be with all these prettys in the garden. here are some snaps I took yesterday afternoon. hope you've been enjoying your weekend.

time is so hard to find at the moment...especially time to blog. ahhh. we are planning a trip to Nepal and India later this year and every available moment is spent researching. we are travelling with dear friends and one of them has had some health concerns over recent months so our plans have fluctuated over the months. now it seems that things are looking good and planning is full steam ahead. my excitement is building. I love travelling - as those who have read my other blog will know. lots of the excitement comes from planning and organising but also from going into the unkown. I'm finding it hard to concentrate on other things at times as I immerse myself in reading about Nepal and India....these birds were inspired by the colours of India for a member of my Passages group toran.
