The sunshine this morning was a welcome treat for us all. The eggs in the nesting box were waiting to be collected.

Mr. Margie got into the planting mood and he prepared the ground in the plastic tunnel for the potatoes.

All the while my eyes were drawn to the entrance gate where the wood anemone and the daffodils and narcissus were in full bloom.

I hope spring has arrived for you too and would love to hear what you like or maybe dislike about it. Have you any spring stories to share?

Beautiful front gate!

No flowers here yet. We even had a brief snow squall here earlier this afternoon. It scared me for a minute because the snow is going fast and we don't need more.

Enjoy your gardens and your planting, Margie.

Ten tiny crocus and one weatherbeaten primrose bloom are all we have at the moment... with snowshowers predicted for tomorrow. I am convinced spring WILL arrive... your beautiful posies are proof! =)

Thanks for the lovely photo. No flowers here, yet. There are still piles of old snow left around. We hope it wont be long, though.

Lovely signs of spring all around you! Thanks for reminding me of what's to come - soon, I hope ;o)

There is still a little snow on the ground where I live, but every day I hear more and more sweet birdies singing their songs outside - they make me smile ;o)

Thanks for visiting my Blog and I enjoyed my visit here!

Best Wishes,
