Spring Is Sprung
We've been waiting and waiting for the spring flowers to come out. All the flowers here are several weeks later than usual, because of the winter we had. Today was a very springlike day, sunny, with occasional sudden showers, and strong winds blowing all the flowers about.
We had a little photo session in the garden when my mum got home from work:
Sniff...sniff...hmm, smells nice, and I like the feel of the wind blowing through my fur.
Bit too yellow for my taste, I prefer ginger...
My mum says all this mess of forsythia is being dug up as soon as it has finished flowering; she has other plans for this messy corner...of course, she said that last spring too...
The camellias aren't quite out yet, but they'll be pretty in a week or two.
Last year the hellebores only had 2 flowers, this year they've had loads. We would have taken some pictures of the lovely crocuses but they are all over now. Lots of other things coming up though. Now you know what springtime is looking like in London - hope the flowers come soon for the kitties who still have snow!
Mom thought we were done with snow and then last week, we got an inch! It went away quickly, though, and today is a nice spring day.
I can't wait for it to be warm enough to have the windows open again. I love the fresh air!
Happy Be-lated Birthday wishes to your mum - hope she had a very nice day!
Thank you for adding us to your blog - you are on ours as well.
It is going to rain tonight and tomorrow, so the leftover snow will wash away, and maybe the flowers need a little drinkie to start coming up. Crocuses have come up and one of my mama's friends has tulips.
Mum likes for-sith-ia, don't figure you could send it to her. Guess shes gotta go get her own.
Gemini is impressed with your puffy fur. She always thought she was the only puffy cat but you have proved her wrong... now she's just the only puffy cat in our house.
Lookin' good among those purrdy flowers. Your Momma must have one of dos green tums... that what I heard my Momma called it.
