spring Sunday

According to my Dairy Diary (which my mum gets from the milkman each year!), spring officially starts on Friday (20th). But it's already here in our garden:

Thought I would share some of the photos I took in the garden during the week:

Chionodoxa flowering happily

Crocus peeping out the side of the strawberry pot (which I've never used for strawberries!)

First aubretia of the year to open out its little petals

and of course, the golden daffodil glowing in the sunshine

Am going to the evening service today as we had a church quiz last night and I don't cope well with an evening event followed by an event next morning. Spent most of yesterday afternoon agonising over whether to go or not. Was rather low yesterday (thanks for the encouraging comments on my last post, guys - much appreciated) and very tired, but in the end I did go. Was the right thing to do - despite physical exhaustion, I needed somewhere to go and be instead of being left at home feeling as I was.

Our team actually won. I'm not great at general knowledge and completely phased out during the sports section (miraculously, I did know one) and concentrated on the dingbats we'd been given. (Did get rather over-excited during the movie quotes, however!) Andy is very good at retaining facts and accessing them quickly. I learn things well but if I don't use the knowledge enough, it slips away.

Talking of facts, I'll try and post the answers to true or false? tomorrow or Tuesday. In the meantime, you can still join in!

In this stretch of Lent before Easter, I hope to post some more serious thoughts I've been having at this time. I should get a wriggle on; it's less than a month away...

Have a blessed Sunday.

Oh my word that brought back some very happy memories - a lady in our previous parish always bought me for Christmas the Dairy Diary and I do miss it!! LOL love your photos too - take care of yourself, Judith

I would love to spend time in your garden - with all those pretty flowers, it looks like it would be incredibly relaxing. Thanks for sharing those photos; they calm me down. :-)

((Hugs)), and hang in there!

RYC: LOL at the link! I especially love it when the cats take up the entire sink. The only time Vogue has ever shown an interest in sinks is when she can lick a dirty dish (which, uh, doesn't happen that often, of course!). Sometimes, she can be quite a boring kitty. And then there are all the other times... :-)

Thanks for the laugh!
