I thought I'd share this photo. It's been a lovely sunny day, and it's the first time the flowers have opened properly. We've done some gardening, and I've washed the patio pots. Unfortunately the frost has damaged my favourite pot, but nevermind, I'll have to buy another one. :)
Keep calm and carry on.

Thank you for sharing such a beautiful picture. It gives out a wonderful warm glow. I will leave it on screen for a while. Spring flowers are always cheering. This year after such bad weather, spring flowers are even more welcome than usual. Roll on the sun. :)

Hi apples. What a pretty picture! :D Spring has sprung, we have been walking past some beautiful gardens recently and admired the flowers which are now in abundance. Even we have some flowers now...it has been quite a wait! :lol:

Have you had some nice sunny days? We have had several sunny days now, a little rain which we need for the water butts. Yesterday we walked about 9 miles and our feet are blistered, but it was lovely and sunny, we walked until the sun went down. :)

There is something about the beginning of spring that makes you feel like you want to be outside all the time. You have a big garden don't you apples? I would like to come round with a hundred trees and turn it into a woodland and plant wildflowers. :) We could sit there on value buckets eating sausages 'cooked on the magic no stink bbq' and sing to the birds.

Of course with all those trees will come a lot of birds and cats, must also have an umbrolly! :wink:

Hi Coggy. Yes, Spring flowers are cheering. They've been a long time coming this year, but worth the wait. :)
Keep calm and carry on.

Hi Will. It's been nice and sunny today, and we have lots of flowers now. Nine miles is a long way to walk, no wonder you have blisters. It's so nice to get out of the house though. :)

I wish you lived nearer Will, we could garden together although I don't think we'd get much done for laughing. A lot of our garden is just trees and shrubs, you could bring as many trees as you like and plant them. While you were doing that I'd cook the sausages on the no stink bbq, and then we could sit on the value buckets and tuck in. :)

I thought you might have been to Berlin. I was reading that someone had stolen 5 metric tons of Nutella from a parked trailer.
I know you wouldn't normally steal, but with it being Nutella you could have got carried away. :lol:
Keep calm and carry on.

Shhhhh :shock: I was on an under cover mission to find and kill some naughty people who started to re-build the wall...turned out it was a garden wall, so I only shot their thumbs...just in case they got bigger ideas. :mrgreen: Then I was bored and hungry...the rest is very sweet, brown and mmmmmmmmmmmm

Shhhhh though, this is just between you and me! :wink:

Ok Will. Shhhhh I won't tell anybody. :wink: Are you a secret agent? If you put a value bucket over your head nobody would recognise you. :)
Keep calm and carry on.
